Cinco Race Forms
& Display at library
From its beginning, the Cinco Race and Walk Event has actively supported the five libraries located within Warren County. Each year all race proceeds are donated to the five libraries in Warren County and are collectively used toward the purchase of library materials which, in turn, benefits all residents of Warren County.
This year, registration forms, information, and displays can be found at each library in addition to their website www.runthecinco.com. The large display at Youngsville Library includes many photos of participants and well- wishers as well as registration forms.
The Cinco Races and Walks are a unique rural race that offers running races of 22.7 miles and running races and fun walks of 13.1 miles, 5 miles, 3.1 miles, and 1.5 miles.
"The Cinco event is more than just a community race and not only because of their generosity to each of our libraries," said Library Director Kristy Wallace. "This community event is Cinco de Mayo-themed with a focus on fun for the whole family. They also offer events from bike safety, fly fishing and urban geocaching instruction to chair massages, arts activities, a magic show, storytelling, face painting and even free dashes for the kids to participate in while parents run or walk. They even have bull costumes for kids and adults to wear if you'd rather interact with the crowd. We are so grateful to the entire Cinco crew for undertaking this event each year and to everyone who registers and participates. As a county, our libraries really do benefit from this event."
The Cinco Races and Walks will take place Saturday, May 3 at 4000 Market St., behind the Warren Mall. Preregistration is strongly encouraged. You can pick up a registration form at your local library or register at www.runthecinco.com, active.com, or call 954-675-4684 with questions.

Located in the rural town of Mto wa Mbu, Tanzania, the Majengo Children's Home was founded in 2008 by Lynn Connell. A group of friends from Warren paid a visit to the orphanage in early 2009 and upon returning home formed the Warren Majengo Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to raising the funds necessary to feed, cloth, and house and educates the Majengo children. The original orphanage quickly proved too small, our numbers grew as did the children. In 2012 the local government granted the orphanage 10 acres on which to build a new facility with more spacious houses, gardens, soccer field, office, dining hall, kitchen, and laundry. Phase 1 of the build is complete, but much more needs to be done!
