The Providence Plantation’s inaugural Pineapple Dash 5K raised more than $2,750 for the Matthews HELP Center.
The 5K, held in the neighborhood last month, saw more than 170 participants and more than 30 volunteers. All proceeds will benefit the crisis assistance center, 119 N. Ames St., which provides financial assistance and food to those in need.
The subdivision plans to make the fundraising 5K an annual event.
