Pajama 5k/ Fun Run & PJ Party!

Winter is in full effect, and there are children freezing through some long, cold nights RIGHT HERE in our neighborhoods.

Come join us for an awesome 5k / 1-mile fun at Druid Hill Park where you can join in on running in Pajamas (onesies encouraged) for a great cause and experience a Mettā Party afterward, where you'll find:

- Delicious Food Trucks
- Talented Local Artists
- Local Artisan Vendors
- Networking Opportunities
- Live Music / Resident DJs (lineup below)

ALL PROCEEDS GO TOWARDS THE FUEL FUND OF MARYLAND:
===============================================
The Fuel Fund of Maryland provides resources to vulnerable Maryland families for heat and home utility needs. Last year…

- 13,187 Children Saved From Crisis
- 10,830 Families Supported
- $.93 of Every Dollar Goes to Families Served by the Fuel Fund

PREVENTING HOMELESSNESS:
- Nonpayment of energy bills is the No. 2 reason people lose their homes, right behind failure to pay the rent.

KEEPING CHILDREN IN SCHOOL:
- One of the greatest tragedies of evictions caused by utility turnoffs is that children not only lose their homes, they also lose their schools, teachers, friends and neighborhood support systems.

ASSISTING THE ELDERLY & DISABLED:
- Combine static incomes with double-digit inflation for medications, along with rising food prices, and the net effect is an ever-widening affordability gap for vulnerable Marylanders.

PROMOTING SAFE HOMES:
- Without energy, families use makeshift means to heat and light their homes, which can prove fatal.

WE ARE SAVING THE EARTH:
- The Fuel Fund teaches energy conservation through its Watt Watchers program, leading to lower energy bills and a healthier environment for all.

About half of the people helped by the Fuel Fund of Maryland are kids, so let's break out the tennis shoes, wake up from hibernation, put on your PJs and come #PartyWithPurpose !

Following the run, everyone is invited to hangout and meet the Mettā Creative Family and Friends at an awesome post-party right in Druid Hill Park with resident DJs to get you jumping!
