The Board of Directors of Cakes for Cause (CFC) is pleased to announce that proceeds from the 4th Annual Cupcake Run: the Sweetest Race in Town will be distributed to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Frederick County (BBBS). The very popular 5K run was held to highlight, as in previous years, the needs of vulnerable youth in the Frederick community. BBBS is dedicated to matching trained volunteer mentors with young people in long term, supportive relationships in order to make a positive difference in their lives. Over its history, the program has been able to document positive shifts in school performance as the result of these amazing relationships.
“We know from our own experience that a strong, day to day commitment to youth can change the course of their lives.” states CFC spokesperson, Elin Ross “We also know that we wanted the proceeds from the Cupcake Run to go to an organization with a mission and vision closely tied to our own.” Over the past three years, the race has brought as many as 850 runners and over 1,000 participants from as far away as England to support CFC apprentices who have gained job skills and vocational support by working in the organization’s social enterprise, Moxie Bakery & Café. “We are undergoing a challenging transition.” says Ross “But we didn’t want to lose the momentum that is generated by this race each year so we decided to use the proceeds to continue to make a difference for kids in the community.”
Thank you to all those that attended in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Frederick County!
