Strides for Support Virtual Benefit 5k

Calendar Next available session starts Jul 19, 2020
In an effort to encourage physical activity and protect the health of our community, Journey to Health is excited to host our first-ever virtual 5k. The Strides for Support virtual benefit 5k will honor those affected by cancer and provide support to the oncology patient assistance funds at Pen Bay Medical Center and Waldo County General Hospital. Although we will not be gathering in person, we are thrilled about the opportunity to celebrate, virtually, with cancer survivors, supporters, friends and families across Knox and Waldo counties. After weeks of being cooped up, we are all eager to get outside and move. What better reason to do so than to support our community? We invite you to walk, jog or run wherever you are to honor family members, friends and neighbors whose lives have been affected by cancer. As a virtual participant you can choose a time and place to walk, run or be active (while social distancing) between July 19 and July 31, 2020. Simply send us a photo from your personal 5k to share your success and join our virtual gallery. Proceeds from the event and all additional contributions will directly benefit our oncology patients. If you would like to make an additional contribution, please call 301-3950.
