The Revolutionary Run story
In 1980, a local church started the Revolutionary Run to raise funds for the church and the Township.
In 1999 the Upper Makefield Business Association (UMBA) were asked to undertake the organization of the Revolutionary Run by Upper Makefield Township officials, since the church was no longer running the Revolutionary Run.
The Upper Makefield Business Association was and still is making the Revolutionary Run a Community Centerpiece Event with the Township proceeds to benefit the Township residents (Emergency services, etc) and the Upper Makefield Business Association annual scholarship fund and other non-profit activities.

Washington Crossing the Delaware an allegorical representation painted by the German-American Emmanuel Leutze in 1850
"The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism.... It should be the highest ambition of every American to extend his views beyond himself, and to bear in mind that his conduct will not only affect himself, his country, and his immediate posterity; but that its influence may be co-extensive with the world, and stamp political happiness or misery on ages yet unborn."--George Washington
