In 2013, the Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation partnered with New Castle County Farm Bureau to launch the inaugural 5K Milk Run/Walk to raise funds for the Ministry of Caring’s Milk for Children fund. The inaugural race was held at Appoquinimink High School and had 99 runners. The first race raised $18,883.73 for the Ministry of Caring.
In 2015, Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation and New Castle County Farm Bureau agreed to add the Neighborhood House, Inc. to the fundraising efforts.
The 5K Milk Run/Walk has had up to 200 participants in a race and has raised almost $79,000 in total for Ministry of Caring and Neighborhood House, Inc.
