Samaritan Foundations and SamFit are partnering once again to present the second annual Samaritan Walk Run Roll, a virtual 5K, 10K and half marathon that participants will complete at their own pace anytime from Sept. 10 to 20, 2021.
Entrants who register for the virtual race between June 11 and 25 will receive a $5 discount off the registration fee and pay only $35. Regular registration is $40 and begins June 26. All entrants who register by Aug. 20 will receive a unique race bib, a custom event T-shirt and a finisher’s medal. Racers will track their own distance and time to upload to the race event site. They can even share a photo of themselves racing so others can see how much fun they are having while getting fit.
The race will motivate individuals to reach their personal fitness goals, and proceeds from each entry fee will benefit Samaritan Health Services’ Patient Support Program. Currently, 610 community members are benefiting from this program through assistance with expenses such as medical bills, transportation, prescriptions, nutritional supplements and groceries. In 2020, the program distributed $82,000 in assistance in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties.
Help support the health and well-being of your community by registering today. The registration deadline to include a T-shirt with your entry is Aug. 20, and you must be registered by Sept. 1 to guarantee you will receive the race packet prior to the race dates.
A 50% discount is available to youth up to the age of 18 who are on the Oregon Health Plan managed by InterCommunity Health Network (IHN-CCO). To get a promo code, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with name, date of birth and member number for member verification.
This year’s event is powered by HUB Barker-Uerlings Insurance, with more sponsorship opportunities available.
