Story by Jessica Beans
Kettering College will host its eighth annual Spring Into Health 5K run/walk Sunday, April 10, at 2 p.m. at the college (3737 Southern Blvd., Dayton, Ohio).
The annual event is a fundraiser for Dayton’s Good Neighbor House (75 percent) and for the college’s Physician Assistant Student Professional Development Fund (25 percent). Good Neighbor House, founded by eight Dayton-area Seventh-day Adventist churches in 1994, gives help and hope to the under served in the Dayton community, providing food pantry services, health promotion, clothing and household items to individuals and families in need.
The seventh annual race in 2015 had about 600 people in attendance for the cause and raised over $10,000 for Good Neighbor House.
The cost is just $25 for participants registering before March 14; registration fees go up to $30 from March 15-April 6. Everyone registered by March 14 is guaranteed a t-shirt. Corporate team discounts are available, and all finishers will be entered into a drawing for a new iPad. Also, there will be a Wellness and Fun Fair starting at 12:30 p.m. and continuing throughout the race that will feature activities for the whole family.
