Tioga State Bank is proud to sponsor the upcoming Kelly LaBare Run & Walk which is scheduled for August 7, as part of the Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally, at Otsiningo Park in Binghamton.

“We are happy to support the Kelly LaBare Run & Walk and the educational scholarships the race provides young people in the Southern Tier, as well as Mom’s House,” said Robert M. Fisher, President & CEO of Tioga State Bank. “Supporting the community is part of what makes Tioga State Bank a good neighbor and true community bank.”

The Kelly LaBare Run & Walk is held in memory and celebration of Kelly LaBare, an education advocate and running enthusiast who died unexpectedly in 1997 at age 25. Because family, children, and running were central to Kelly’s life, this event was created to honor each of these areas. If you are interested in more information on the Kelly LaBare Run & Walk, call 607-722-8744 or email: gtabeek@stny.rr.com.

Tioga State Bank provides financial services to the Southern Tier of New York State and Northern Pennsylvania with 11 conveniently located offices in Broome, Tioga, Chemung and Tompkins counties. The bank’s website address is www.tiogabank.com.
