Better than bacon! Join our Lunar New Year 5K charity walk/run!
International Community Health Services (ICHS) invites local runners and walkers to its 4th annual Lunar New Year 5K walk and run fundraiser, on Sunday, Feb. 24, 2019 along the Shoreline Interurban Trail.
The Lunar New Year is traditionally the most significant holiday for many Asian Pacific Islanders, marking the return of Spring and a special time for families to offer wishes for health and prosperity in the coming year. The Year of the Pig begins on February 5, 2019.
The start of the 5k will be launched with a colorful lion dance performance. The event includes chip-timing, awards in different age categories and for best pet costumes, prizes and post-race food and beverages. Lucky red envelopes will also be passed out.
Last year, ICHS provided over $1.2 million in charity care. Proceeds from the 5k will go toward supporting care for these patients in need.
This is a family and pet friendly community event. Pets would have to be leashed to participate.
Early bird registration is open until February 1, 2019 is $30, after February 1 is $35, and on race day is $40. A free commemorative t-shirt (limited in quantity) will be included along with the registration fee. The event is free to youth under 13 and those 65 and older.
Online registration is open until February, 22. Same day race registration will be available at the race site.
