Description

The Rush-Henrietta Rotary Club, in conjunction with the Rush-Henrietta Area Food Terminal (RHAFT) and the Town of Henrietta Recreation Department, invite you to participate in the 2nd annual Rush-Henrietta Kicking Hunger 5K in Henrietta, NY. This race will take place on June 1st, 2019, at and around the Town of Henrietta Recreation Center located at 605 Calkins Road. Changes to this year’s race include an earlier race date to allow for the participation of RHCSD students through the Sherman Elementary Run Club, and the goal of providing a USATF certified course for runners and walkers. Several other minor adjustments either have or will be made to build on the overwhelmingly positive feedback received from the 2018 event.  

The purposes of this race are to bring awareness and provide tangible solutions to the issue of hunger in our community, as well as continuing the tradition of promoting exercise and family-centered events in our town. Last year we were able to raise over $3,000 and collect hundreds of non-perishable food items to be used for the Rush-Henrietta Kicking Hunger Summer Food Program. This program was started three years ago by RHCSD staff with the aim of providing food for local families over the summer months. This past summer the program helped to provide groceries for over 200 families in the RH community. The money raised was also able to help provide support for other community food and student-centered programs through RHAFT.
