    • Good Samaritan 5K Run/ Walk
      4/11/2015 9:00am: Special Events
      Come and be part of the 2nd Annual Good Samaritan 5K Run/Walk;a faith-based family event taking place on Saturday, April 11th, 2015 at Long Branch Park in Liverpool, NY. Our goal is to encourage volunteering and to provide additional funding for Christian Health Service of Syracuse (CHSOS), a not-for-profit medical facility at 3200 Burnet Ave. in Syracuse. CHSOS has already served thousands of people in the community by providing affordable, primary healthcare coupled with the love of Jesus Christ in prayer to uninsured patients, low insurance patients, and to those with Medicaid.

      We believe no one should have to be turned away from receiving proper healthcare. In order to increase the capacity of uninsured patients presently served, surplus income is needed in order to take on an additional provider, hire new staff, recruit volunteers, and extend the hours of operation. All proceeds from the Good Samaritan 5K Run/Walk will help to ensure that quality healthcare continues to be provided at CHSOS to those who cannot afford the medical attention they need.

      The event will host a 5K race that is geared for both runners and walkers of all levels beginning at 10am. Race registration is $25.00/per person. Children 12 and under are free. Participants should register online at GoodSamaritanRun.org. (Register by March 11th to receive a long sleeve, moisture-wicking race shirt!) Participants will also receive a nice swag bag full of goodies. Pre-Packet pickup will take place at Fleet Feet in Dewitt on Friday, April 10th from 11am to 6pm. The 5K (or 3.2 mile) course is USAT certified. Yellow Jacket Timing will be in charge of the data entry and timing services.

      This year’s event will begin with a “Kids’ Samaritan Sprint” at 9:30am; a quick loop for kids ages 5-12, around the event area and through the Finish Chute, prior to the Good Samaritan 5K Run/Walk beginning at 10am. There will also be a brand new division of the race called the “Buddy Wheelchair Racers” which will allow people of any age with disabilities to participate with an attendant for one registration fee. Refreshments and bottled water will be available to race participants after the race. Inspirational music, vendors, entertainment, and concession stands will be on site at the event from 9am to 12pm. Following the race, there will be an award ceremony for the top 3 male and female finishers as well as the top 3 finalists in different age brackets.

      Companies may make tax-deductible contributions to The Good Samaritan 5K Run/Walk for Christian Health Service of Syracuse. Space is also available for vendors who would like to be part of the event. Monetary gifts may also be sent there or sent by check payable to Christian Health Service of Syracuse, attn: Good Samaritan Run 3200 Burnet Ave. Syracuse, NY 13206.

      Your participation in The Good Samaritan 5K Run/Walk will go a long way to ensure that helping our neighbors in need continues to be possible. Come on out and be sure to support this event!
