Prismworks Technology staff members donned their running shoes Nov. 5 to participate in the Swatara Township Police Department‘s 10th and final 5K Hero Run in Harrisburg, PA.

The Hero Run was established to honor the many heroes in our society – armed service members, public safety professionals, and the personal heroes in our own lives. The racecourse led over 500 participants along Tecport Drive, Paxton Street, and inside the Harrisburg Mall. In honor of the race’s theme, many runners clocked the 3.1 miles in their best superhero costumes.

Representing the “Prismworks Rocks” 5K team was Prismworks Network Engineer Cindy Cowan, President Mark Crescenzi, Sales & Marketing Specialist Catherine Amoriello, and a few of their family members.

This was Cowan’s second year participating in the race, and she was happy to get other Prismworks staff members involved with the event.

“Community involvement allows us to donate to local organizations that are important on a personal level. The Hero Run specifically provides community interaction with government officials, first responders, and other local residents who we may not ordinarily get to meet,” said Cowan.

Participants run and walk beneath an American flag hoisted above the racecourse.

Funds raised through the 5K Hero Run will go toward the Keystone Warriors (support for PA veterans), COPS for K.O.P.S (support for children of fallen police officers), National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (support for families of fallen firefighters), and the Swatara Township Police Department’s K-9 fund.
