Cardio and beer may seem incompatible, but one 5K series will combine the two for a good cause. The Pennsylvania Brewery Running Series hosts runs and walks that start and end at breweries in various communities. Starting June 10, the series will launch in Pittsburgh with events at Sly Fox, Strange Roots, Inner Groove, and others. A portion of the proceeds will benefit 412 Food Rescue, a nonprofit dedicated to saving food from landfills.

and other media outlets, the diner chain came to the decision after a bakery partner closed. A spokesperson says the treat may return to locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia "at some point."
