The Fisher House 5 and First Responders/Military Challenge Sponsored by WRVA NewsRadio 1140, Runner Bills, Diamond Springs Water, White Orthodontics and Commonwealth Timing and Race Management.
Join us in a race to benefit the Fisher House at the V.A. Medical Center. Runners and walkers are welcome.
In addition to the Fisher House 5 the First Responders/Military Challenge will pit teams of 4 from police, fire, rescue and military units from around the Richmond area in a head to head challenge. The cumulative time for the team will determine who is the "Fastest Unit in Richmond." See the race website for more details.
Fisher House provides lodging for the families of severely wounded military personnel at no cost so that they can be close to their loved ones during their weeks and months of treatment and rehabilitation. Supporting America's military in their time of need, Fisher House provides "a home away from home" that enables military family members the opportunity to be close to a loved one at one of the most stressful times -- during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury.
There will be a $20.00 registration fee. All participants registered by October 20 will receive a Fisher House 5 race shirt. (Shirts will be provided to all others as long as they last). Active Duty, Veterans, police, firefighters, rescue personnel and kids 13 and under may register for $15.00. Race day registration is $25.00. > All proceeds will go to the Richmond Fisher House at the Hunter Holmes McGuire V.A. Hospital to help in providing the important services they are doing for our military and military families. Start/finish line is at Midlothian Middle School
