We invite you to participate in the Ritchie Regional Health Center 2022 5K Race "Stepping on Hunger". All proceeds from this event will be given to local food pantries to help combat hunger in our communities. Our goal is to raise $5,000. We are also asking all participants to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated on the day of the race.
Food insecurity - meaning there simply are not enough resources for all members of the household to have nutritionally adequate food - is a critical problem in our area. West Virginia suffers from a food insecurity rate of 15.3 %. In our area, one in six struggles with hunger and one in six children will worry about where their next meal is coming from.
The race will take place Saturday, August 6, 2022, at 8 a.m. in Harrisville, WV, in front of the Ritchie County Courthouse. The kids race will follow. Awards will be presented following the races. The preregistration fee is $15 per participate. Race day registration is $20. The Kids Fun Run is free.
To preregister, complete an application and return it (and the fee), to any RRHC location. The application/fee can also be mailed to P.O. Box 373 Harrisville, WV 26362. To preregister online, please click here.
