19th Annual Run for the Health of It

Saturday, May 11, 2019 VNSHS 505 Main Street Northport, NY

Nearly 500 guests attended this year’s 5K as VNSHS honored Running Royalty Nina Kuscsik, NYRR Hall of Famer and first woman to officially win the Boston Marathon and Gary Muhrcke, winner of the first NYC Marathon and Founder of Super Runners Shop. Presented by Atria, Avanti and Caring People during National Nurses Week, nearly 500 guests attended this year’s 5K, kids fun run and festival. Guests enjoyed complimentary refreshments, music, raffles, stretching, kids activities and more. With the generous, loyal support of our sponsors, runners/walkers and their families and friends, and volunteers, $15,000 was raised to support Hospice House.

The day kicked off with a kids fun run, followed by the 5K with 285 finishers and concluded with the Honoree and runner awards ceremony.  Cash prizes were awarded to the top 3 overall male and female finishers, male and female masters champions, top nurse and top team. Prize sponsor, Signature Premier Properties, presented the top 3 finishers in age categories with Amazon gift cards. Special thank you to Champion Car Wash, Copenhagen Bakery and our sponsors for awesome swag bags. Visit here for runner’s recap of the day.
