March for Parks Wrap-Up

THANK YOU to everyone who made the 2018 March for Parks another great success! Marches were held on Saturday, March 24 at the Twin Lakes Park Peach Plaza Area and the Murrysville Community Center. Wrapping up its 16th year, the March had over 650 Marchers, 37 teams, and 57 business sponsors raised over $80,000 at two locations to support Westmoreland County’s parks, trails and recreation programs!
