KRMC's annual Race for Hospice 10K, 5K runs set for May
KINGMAN - The 11th Annual Route 66 Race for Hospice starts at 7:15 a.m. May 10.
The goal of the event this year is to raise funds to help support operations of the Joan and Diana Hospice Home in Kingman. The home began seeing patients in July 2010 and offers hospice services to those individuals who are dying from a terminal illness.
Key sponsors are the Kingman Regional Medical Center Foundation, the Dambar & Steakhouse, Desert Construction, The Lingenfelter Center and KJJJ Radio.
The entry fee is $25 for adults and $15 for children (12 years and younger) prior to May 2. The fee for adults is $30 thereafter. Participants who raise $100 or more in pledges will have their entry fee waived and be eligible for prizes at the awards party afterward.
All participants will receive a colorful T-shirt with a grab bag of goodies. Prizes will be awarded to the 10K and 5K top three finishers for each age group by gender.
Packet pick-up is from 5 to 9 p.m. May 9 at the Dambar & Steakhouse. All participants who pick up their packets there will receive a coupon for 20 percent off their dinner that evening at the Dambar.
Participants can sign up online at www.active.com or call Scott Kern at (928) 681-8656.
The 10K and 5K races begin and end at the Powerhouse Visitor Center, while the 3-mile walk starts there but then meanders through historic downtown Kingman.
