Help Bring Music to Those Who Need it Most

Bring the family to this scenic USATF certified 5K run to support WXPN Musicians On Call. Enjoy the course through beautiful Penn Park at the University of Pennsylvania.

New this year: WXPN has  added a separate approximately 1-mile course just for walkers they are calling the “Funky Miler!” So now you can run, walk or funk your way to help raise funds for this great cause.
