Huntington Board of Realtors sponsors Peeps Run for Children's Hospital

Jan. 21, 2013 @ 01:38 PM

HUNTINGTON — The Huntington Board of Realtors will have a 5K Run/Walk called the Peeps Run on Saturday, March 23, to benefit the new Hoops Family Children's Hospital.

The event is open to runners and walkers of all ages. Cost for participants who register prior to March 1 is $15. After the deadline the cost goes to $20.  

This year's event will take place at Ritter Park in Huntington. Registration for those not already registered is 9 a.m. race day. The run will begin at 10 a.m. Information about early packet pick up will be announced at a later date. A children's run has been added to the program this year and will take place prior to the run/walk. Games and activities are planned for the little ones and the Easter Bunny will be making an appearance as well.

"We are thrilled to be working with the Cabell Huntington Hospital Foundation on this project that will benefit the entire community and beyond,” said David Roof, event chair, in a news release. “There are only 190 certified children's hospitals nationwide, so Huntington is joining an elite group."
