About This Activity

The Plymouth Recreation Department will be holding their 3rd 5k run/1.5 mile fun walk at Forges Field to raise money for our youth scholarship program.   Last year we raised over $2,000 and had more than 130 runners join us!

In 2008 the Recreation Department established a scholarship program in an effort to ensure that Plymouth residents are not denied the benefits of public recreation due to their inability to pay. The Recreation Department believes that every resident should have the opportunity to take part in public recreational programs and classes.  Public recreation promotes physical, mental and social well-being and serves as a setting in which friendships bloom, families thrive, and community pride is forged.  Since its inception, the Plymouth Recreation scholarship program has made the benefits of recreation accessible to hundreds of children who would not otherwise have the means to participate in recreation activities.
