5K Run/Walk to benefit Hospice of Butler and Warren counties Sept. 28

Hospice of Butler & Warren Counties has a mission, and you have a chance to help with it. The philosophy is this: To celebrate the lives of the people served by providing superior care and superior services to each patient and family. Hospice of Butler & Warren Counties is a non-profit, community-based hospice, with employees and volunteers dedicated to providing patients who have life-limiting illnesses and the community with the best medical, spiritual, and grief support.
Millions of people, and therefore millions of families, turn to hospice for help and comfort, and now, Hospice of Butler & Warren counties is giving families and friends an opportunity to remember their loved ones, and give back to the organization at the same time.
On Saturday September 28th, you can be part of the 2nd annual Remembrance 5K Run & Walk. It’s at Smith Park on Tytus Avenue in Middletown, Ohio. The park provides a paved fitness course with a natural landscape, and it’s entirely in the park which provides walkers and runners with a comfortable, clearly marked, and level terrain.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the race starts at 10 a.m. There’s plenty to do whether running or cheering! Kids can take part in a craft workshop, and everyone will want to line up for the Kona Ice shaved ice truck. (15% of the Kona Ice proceeds will be donated to the charity) There will also be a professional sky-diving demonstration and a Zumba® Fitness warm-up.
The race is $25 for adults, $15 for kids 7 and under.
