The Greater Perryville Chamber of Commerce will host its 2nd annual Spring Fling 5K and 1 Mile Walk.

Last year's event helped the chamber donate to such local organizations as Perryville High School (track, football and field hockey teams), Perryville Middle School (staff appreciation luncheon, holiday adopt-a-family), Perryville Elementary School (Earth Day Walk-a-Thon), the Destination Imagination team (trip to national tournament), Perryville Volunteer Fire Department (annual donation), Cecil College (annual scholarship), Lower Susquehanna Heritage Greenway (River Sweep), Perryville Little League and more. Proceeds from this event also go toward other community events such as the Autumnfest Parade and Festival.

Part of the money raised from this event will go toward the chamber's new fundraising partnership with the Perryville High School Football Booster Club and Cecil County schools. This partnership has been developed to raise money to make upgrades to Perryville High School's sports fields. The first project to be tackled will be the replacement of the school's scoreboard. Other future projects include new storage facilities, resurfacing the stadium turf and the installing a digital sign at the school's exit to announce the events going on at the school.
