 In the aftermath of the tragedy that took Deputy Gumm’s life The Adams County Sheriffs Foundation, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization was able to accept and facilitate donations for the Gumm family. The Adams County Sheriff’s Foundation will again be responsible for the acceptance and distribution of donated funds. 

A charitable donation to the Foundation ensure expenses are paid for the race and there will be an opportunity for prizes and recognition, along with financial support for the Gumm family with proceeds made from the event.  The success of the Gummball 5K would not be possible without support from the generous people like you and your organizations. Together we make an impact larger than individual efforts. Lives are touched, our community is strengthened.
