RH Kicking Hunger 5K Run / Walk (In Person – JUNE 1ST or Virtual)

Summary

The Rush-Henrietta Athletic Association, in conjunction with the Rush-Henrietta Area Food Terminal (RHAFT) and the Town of Henrietta Recreation Department, invite you to participate in the 7th annual Rush-Henrietta Kicking Hunger 5K in Henrietta, NY. The 2024 race will provide participants with two options – a live event on Saturday, June 1st (8 am start) or a virtual event the weekend of Friday, May 31st to Sunday, June 2nd. The purpose of this race will continue to focus on bringing awareness and providing tangible solutions to the issue of hunger in our community, as well as continuing the tradition of promoting exercise and family-centered events in our town. Since 2018, the race has raised over $35,000 and also allowed for RHAFT to collect hundreds of non-perishable food items. Race proceeds have directly impacted our local community by helping to fund both the Rush-Henrietta Central School District (RHCSD) Kicking Hunger Summer Food Program and BackPack Program, as well as providing support for community food and student-centered programs through both RHAFT and the Town of Henrietta. In 2020 and 2021, the Kicking Hunger Committee distributed more than 1,800 bags of food to local families through the RHCSD BackPack Program. The race has also allowed for the opening of the Rush-Henrietta School Food Pantry in the Good Shepherd Building on East Henrietta Road. This community resource, which has been opened since November 2020, continues to support local families in need. PRICING: Register by Sunday, May 19th, 2024 – $20 (kids ages 1-18), $25 (all other participants), pricing increases on May 20th – $30 (all participants) REGISTER BY MAY 19TH TO BE GUARANTEED A RACE T-SHIRT. 2024 Race Participant Raffle Prize Contributors (List will be continuously updated as race weekend gets closer): PARTICIPANTS MUST BE PRESENT AT THE RACE RAFFLE TO CLAIM PRIZES.
