Albany InReach Services to host 5K run for transportation vouchers

Jul 21,2014
Albany InReach Services will host Run for Rides, a 5K run/walk on Saturday, Aug. 2 at 9 a.m. at Bowman Park to raise funds for transportation vouchers for patients in need.

This out-and-back 5K run/walk will follow the Dave Clark trail from Bowman Park, along the Willamette River toward downtown Albany before heading back to the park.
Registration is $15, which includes race entry and snacks afterward. Check-in starts at 8 a.m. the day of the race, and the run/walk will begin at 9 a.m.

Proceeds will benefit the InReach Fund at the Albany General Hospital Foundation, to provide transportation vouchers for InReach patients who need assistance getting to their appointments. Registration fees are not tax-deductible.

InReach offers access to medical, dental and mental health services for the medically underserved in the Albany area.
