Nearly 200 Runners Lace Up for 'Miles for Moms'

The 5K raised money for Mom's House, a local charity that helps single parents go back to school.

The fourth annual “Miles for Moms” race was a hit, as nearly 200 runners participated in the 5K that looped around the streets of Phoenixville High School.

Proceeds from the event went to Mom’s House, a terrific local charity that provides free child-care services for low-income single moms (and dads) who are attending school full time.

The winner of the fourth annual race was Chuck Crabb, who finished with a time of 18:20. The fastest female runner was Samicha Konkar, who clocked a time of 23:07.
