Thrive Alliance / JCB 5K: Supporting Caregivers Step-By-Step
April 9, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
On April 9th we will be hosting our third annual Thrive Alliance / JCB 5K fundraiser to raise awareness and support of local caregivers. This is a great opportunity for the community to get involved and show support for caregivers, older adults and persons with disabilities.
Last year we raised $12,185! This year, we have a goal of $15,000 for services that support, inform and offer respite for local caregivers.
Caregivers run an endless race every day. They have set out on a course (by choice or not). At times, they travel at an easy gait with the wind on their backs. Other times, they wonder where they will find the strength to take another step. Their route is fraught with the challenge of rough roads, blind curves, barriers and obstacles.
It also includes the joy of beautiful views, the sound of others’ footsteps beside them, and the celebration of accomplishments and love. Each caregiver’s course is different but they all run or walk it the same…one second, one minute, one day at a time…step-by-step.
Supporters can participate by running or walking (competitively or for fun) or by becoming a donor or sponsor.
All participants will be given the opportunity to wear the name of the person they are running or walking in honor of.
