A Wider Circle’s 4K run/walk and tot trot fundraiser is set for April 27 at Meadowbrook Park (7901 Meadowbrook Lane) in Chevy Chase.

The Race To End Poverty will start at 9 a.m. and the Silver Spring-based charity is hoping to raise $20,000 through the event to help furnish 4,000 homes in 2013.

In 2012, A Wider Circle furnished 3,650 area homes. The organization provides beds, dressers, kitchen tables and other furniture to low-income households and counseling programs for recently-homeless parents and others in need of tips for job interviews.

The 4K race allows participants to enter as an individual or team and pledge money for different programs:
