Sterman Masser, Inc. is excited to host Hegins Valley’s 2nd Annual Hot Potato 5K Run/Fun Walk, which this year will include the addition of 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, all proceeds from this year’s race will go to benefit children and youth activities in the Tri Valley Area.
