DCH Foundation Freedom 5K Run/3K Walk set for July 4 in Clintwood

6/20/2014


CLINTWOOD, Va. – There’s something for the whole family at the inaugural DCH Foundation Freedom 5K Run/3K Walk and Kids, Fun Run, to be held July 4 starting at 8 a.m. It is a fundraiser for the Dickenson Community Hospital Foundation.

The events will start at the walking track across from Kids Corner Park, located near the Food City parking lot on Foxtown Road. Pre-registration is $20 for the 5K or 3K if done by June 27 and $25 after that. The Kids Fun Run is $10 regardless of when you register.

“We want to raise money for our hospital and also raise awareness of the DCH Foundation and what it means to the community,” said Bill Farthing, director of Major Gifts & Planned Giving with the Mountain States Foundation. “The Foundation has helped with projects that have directly benefited our patients and their families.”

The DCH Foundation was created five years ago and has benefited various causes for the hospital. Last year the Foundation helped with the installation of an automatic door at the Emergency Room, replaced the TV in the ER waiting area and replaced the Bi-Pap machine and defibrillator in the ER.

After the 5K race, a Kiwanis pancake breakfast will be available for purchase.
