Project Brief

The Delaware KIDS Fund 5K Series was a longstanding event in the Delaware community. For 10 years, Ryan has been involved in the creation and growth of this charitable, multi-location event. The annual 5K Series was designed to help local kids with a secondary goal of boosting community engagement and neighborhood support.

Since there were multiple locations for the 5K Series, this event provided the additional challenge of hyper-localized target marketing. The overall strategy for the event had to be broken down into coordination and marketing efforts specific to each location and timeline.

In 2023 – The Delaware KIDS Fund was renamed Sam’s KIDS in honor of Sam Hanna.

“The 5K Series was designed to address food insecurity amongst Delaware children and help bring the community together within the neighborhood we served. We put an extra emphasis on the event amenities at the 5K series hoping to create a more festive environment compared to other area 5K’s at the time. It was a great platform to bring everyone from the community together working towards the greater good for our next generation in need.”
