To the editor: The first annual Run United 5K Run and Walk was held Saturday, Nov. 13, at Wilmer Park in Chestertown.

The day was perfect, the competition friendly, and the event a total success. Thank you to all the runners, walkers, sponsors, and volunteers who participated in the event as well as the Chestertown Police Department, Kent County Sheriff’s Office and State Highway Administration who kept all the participants safe on the road.

This experience demonstrated that engagement, enthusiasm and commitment can help build a thriving community — in this case, raising money for the United Way of Kent County.

Donations can be made at or sent to P.O. Box 594, Chestertown, MD 21620.

We look forward to the next United Way of Kent County Run and Walk on Nov. 12, 2022!
