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 3rd annual Rush-Henrietta Kicking Hunger 5K in Henrietta, NY. This race will take place on June 6th, 2020, at and around Veterans Memorial Park located at 595 Calkins Road.

The purpose of this race will continue to focus on bringing awareness and providing 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. The 2018 and 2019 races raised $3,300 and $5,500 respectively, and also allowed for RHAFT to collect hundreds of non-perishable food items. Race proceeds have directly impacted our local community by helping to fund the 2018 Rush-Henrietta Central School District (RHCSD) Kicking Hunger Summer Food Program, as well as providing support for community food and student-centered programs through both RHAFT and the RHCSD during the 2019 summer months.
