Sterman Masser, Inc. is excited to host Hegins Valley’s 4th Annual Hot Potato 5K Run/Fun Walk, which will again include the Tater Tot Trot for kids ages 12 and under. It is one of SMI’s core beliefs that community involvement is essential for the success and continued growth of the Hegins Valley community. In addition, one of our basic corporate commitments is: “To enhance the lives in our community by being the potato products company of choice." To fulfill these beliefs, we have been searching for a way to enhance our community in a larger way. The establishment of this race in 2013 has created what we hope will be a long-standing tradition while promoting a healthy lifestyle for our community.
With that in mind, the Tri-Valley Youth Activities Fund was established in 2015, a non-profit 501c(3) charitable organization. The purpose of the TVYAF is: "To enhance the quality of life for all members of our community and surrounding areas by promoting, restoring and constructing the infrastructure needed to attract and retain the best and brightest so that the vitality of our region is sustained for generations to come." The TVYAF board awarded over $36,000 in grant monies raised in 2014 and 2015 to Tri-Valley youth and children associations. This year the board will again award grants with the monies raised in 2016 and all proceeds for the 2017 race will go to the TVYAF, benefiting children and youth activities in the Tri Valley Area.
