RH Kicking Hunger 5K Run / Walk
June 3 @ 8:00 am
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 6th annual Rush-Henrietta Kicking Hunger 5K in Henrietta, NY. The 2023 race will provide participants with two options – a live event on Saturday, June 3rd (8 am start) or a virtual event the weekend of Friday, June 2nd to Sunday, June 4th.
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. The 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 races raised $3,300, $5,500, $7,000, $9,500, and $6,500 respectively, 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. Since February 2020, we have handed out 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 21st, 2023 – $20 (all participants), pricing increases on May 22nd – $25 (all participants)
