Be Kind 5 K
The Be Kind 5 K fun run/walk endows a scholarship fund created at WCA Foundation in Rosie Billquist’s memory.  The name of the race comes from the quote Rosie painted on a bench she created for patients to use outside UPMC Chautauqua  where she worked.  It reads:  “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.”  Rosie was a joyful, kind-hearted individual who loved to run and to help others.  Thank you for doing the same by supporting this event.

In these uncertain times, we wanted to make sure to keep everyone safe and healthy! And, with that being said, we are changing this event to a virtual event. We hope to make this as interactive and fun as possible-just like Rosie would have wanted! Feel free to post pics of your walks/runs, your treadmill walking/running and taking your pet outside for a walk. 

Let's all come together and make this a successful, fun event!
