Peoples Bank Kicks Off ‘Pay-it-Forward’ Virtual 5K/10K

September 8, 2020

To encourage a healthy, socially distant active lifestyle, Peoples Bank is inviting the community to participate in a “Pay-it-Forward” Virtual 5K/10K. Designed to help support individuals and families experiencing homelessness, 100% of all entry fees will be donated to local nonprofit organizations serving this community. In Whatcom County, proceeds will be donated to Northwest Youth Services.

Participants can complete the virtual 5K/10K between September 1, 2020, and midnight on October 31, 2020. Any form of activity is welcome, including running, walking, biking, swimming, rollerblading, or anything else. Participants who share a photo or video on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #PBVirtual5K10K will be entered to win one of three $500 prizes in the form of a donation to the charitable organization of their choice.
