FOR LIFE

PARTICIPATE for FREE!

This year's 5k for Life will be a celebration of LIFE with NO REGISTRATION FEES.

HeartReach Center is a non-profit organization with no political affiliation.

We hope you will partner with us to raise donations

and build awareness for the value of life.

 

After you have completed registration, you will be able to donate as you wish.

You can also let your friends and community contribute to your donation by sharing your very own donation page on social media and raising more funds. 

 

WIN PRIZES ON RACE DAY!!!

On the day of the race, donations are tallied and you will be able to collect your raffle tickets.

Every $100 you raise  = 1 raffle ticket.

There is no limit. Drawings will take place on race day after the final heat.

 

 Previous prizes have included gift certificates for local businesses, including meals, movies, tours and events. Keep your eyes peeled!  

Purchase a t-shirt and contribute in style.

At registration you will be provided the option to pre-order a race shirt.

T-shirts can be collected and paid for at bib pick up or on race day.  

Wear your shirt and show your love for life.  

We recognize that some may simply want to participate in our 5k. If that's you, that's good too.

Fundraising is completely optional and registration is free even if you choose not to donate.

The race begins and ends at the Trunk Rd. Park & Ride. There is plenty of parking at the venue. Registration, tents, refreshments, and games will be set up on the lawn.

Don't  forget to bring your lawn chair!

Frequently Asked Questions

What will the event schedule look like?


We will have FREE refreshments, games, music and more on the lawn throughout the event. On-site registration and bib pick-up begin at 9:00 a.m. Bike heat start: 10:00 a.m. Foot race start: 10:30 a.m. Prize drawings and awards will be held after the last foot racer returns. All event activities are typically finished before noon.




Can I still participate even if can't make it on June 19th?


Absolutely! Many friends of HeartReach Center choose bike, run or walk their 5k for Life on their own. We appreciate the support and comradare no matter where you choose to fulfill your event commitment.




What about children? Are there any age limits on who can participate?


We enjoy having your kiddos participate in the 5k for Life. Our only request is that anyone under 12 be accomapnied by a parent or adult at all times. Additionally, any kiddo old enough to want their race time is welcome to be offically registered and wear a bib. Please note, however, there is no need to register children who are too young to want their event times. These little tikes are still welcome, but NOT registering them will save us a considerable amount of time (and a bit of money) by not assigning bibs to them. *Little bikers are welcome to bike with the foot racers so that they can keep up with their parents and should ONLY be part of the bike heat if accompanied by a biking parent or adult.*




The bike heat is only 30 minutes. What if I can't finish that fast?


Last year, HeartReach implemented a separate bike heat. This was done so that competitive bikers wouldn't have to dodge walkers and strollers on their way back to the finish line. Since our course is an out-and-back one, this was a real hazard. Most of our adult bikers finish their 5k in well under 20 minutes. However, if you are not sure whether or not you can complete a biked 5k in under 30 minutes, we are guessing that you won't be going for a competitive time. As such, there's no issue with you remaining out on the course. You just need to know that your bib may not register an accurate time when you do cross the finish line as your heat will already have been over.




What age divisions will you have?


Here are the age divisions from which we will be recognizing 1st - 3rd place finishers: Biker and Foot Racer Categories Child (12 and under) Youth (13-18) Adult (19-29) Adult (30-39) Adult (40-49) Adult (50-59) Adult (60 + up)
