Registration is open for the inaugural Hustle for the House 5K at Clay Terrace. Proceeds will benefit the St.Vincent House, a new, 20-unit residential facility for families of St.Vincent patients from outside Central Indiana.
“This is a way to give back to the community,” said Megan Coors, marketing director for Clay Terrace. “The St.Vincent House will provide a vital service for those dealing with family members in local hospitals, so we are excited to host this race and support this organization and cause.”
The rain or shine race beginning at 8 a.m. April 30 will take participants through the outdoor shopping center up and down the boulevard, utilizing part of the parking lot and the walking/bike path that goes through Clay Terrace.
“Last year we hosted the Mommy Mile, so we knew we had the capability to host a 5K like this,” Coors said. “We wanted to explore and expand this.”
Coors said although they don’t have a goal in mind for the number of participants, it’s hoped “families throughout the community will rally behind us and support it by signing up to participate in this race.”
Following the race, families can enjoy breakfast and special offers from vendors.
The entry fee is $35 until April 14 and increases to $40 April 15. Group discounts are available. To register, visit raceroster.com/events/2017/12122/hustle-for-the-house-5k-at-clay-terrace.
“Because this is a first-time event we really don’t have a dollar amount in mind to raise,” Coors said. “We just hope to be able to make a nice, sizeable donation back for these families at the St.Vincent House.”
