As a fan, you love to see players and coaches do things in the community as it really shows they are not just here to play or coach, but they want to make a difference. Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter is doing just that as he, his wife Angela and Orioles Reach are hosting 5k/1 mile walk today at Camden Yards.
Buck, Angela and Orioles Reach have partnered with Kids Peace to host the fourth annual Trick-or-Trot 5k/1 mile walk that will take place today at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The Proceeds from the event will benefit Kids Peace Foster Care and Community Programs of Maryland and Washington D.C., which also includes KEYS (KidsPeace Empowering Youth to Succeed. KEYS is a program that prepares youth for independence through life-skills training.
It won’t be hard to pick out some of the participants in the walk as all walkers/runners are encouraged to dress in their favorite Halloween costumes, so if you see random people around Baltimore in costumes, they could be people walking or running for a cause!
Not only are participants doing this for a good cause, but they will also get to do something many Orioles fans dream of doing and that is stepping onto the field at Camden Yards as the race/walk finishes on the field.
It is great to see Buck and his wife Angela continue to do this for the community and it really shows the character of the Showalter’s and the effort that the Orioles Reach program puts forth to help the Baltimore community.
The race begins at 8:00 am this morning.
