The 22nd Annual Chesterfield Regional Chamber Gumbo Flats Pumkin 5K Run was enjoyed by over 500 runners. Volunteers from the Assistance League of St. Louis cheered the runners on while tending their booth with the Books From Friends program volunteers dressed in their book character costumes, Clifford the Big Red Dog and Pluto, to name a few.


The Books From Friends program promotes literacy by fostering a love of reading and is one of the Assistance League of St. Louis’s five community programs serving St. Louis. In addition, 25 Assistance League members participated by walking the 5K course.


The Assistance League of St. Louis was chosen as the non-profit to benefit from this exciting annual event, resulting in an approximately $900.00 donation.
