2017 Race for hospice
Kingman Regional Medical Center Foundation is pleased to announce the Fourteenth Annual Route 66 Race for Hospice. The event will be held on Saturday, May 13th, with the first race starting promptly at 7:15 a.m.
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 who are dying from a terminal illness.
The 10k and 5k races begin and end at the Powerhouse Visitor Center on Route 66/Andy Devine. The route continues up the El Trovatore hill. The 5k turnaround point is at the crest of the hill, but the 10k continues up Hualapai Mountain Road turning around just past the Copper Ridge apartments, and follows the same route back. The 3-mile walk also starts at the Powerhouse Visitor Center but then meanders through historic downtown Kingman before finishing at Locomotive Park where the closing awards ceremony will be held. There will also be a 1k run for juniors 12 years and under.
Entry fee is $25 for adults and $15 for children (12 years and younger) prior to May 10th. 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 t-shirt. Awards will be given to the 10k and 5k top three finishers for each age group by gender.
Packet pick-up will be on Friday, May 12th from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Dambar & Steakhouse. All participants who pick up their packets there will receive a coupon for 20% off their dinner that evening at the Dambar.
Once again, this promises to be a premiere event. Participants can sign up on line at www.active.com, call Ben McGlothlin at 928-263-3873 for more information, or print out an entry form.
