116 people are registered for our Run for Hope 5K and guess what, it is just over a month away on May 4th! As you might already know, all registered runners will receive tons of swag and snacks along with a custom keepsake race bib!
Yet one of the coolest pieces of swag is this year’s t-shirt which features a new, fun snazzy design on a sharp black shirt. However, to get this t-shirt in your size, you must register by April 12th either online or by using our offline form that you can drop off or mail to Valley Natural Foods. If registering offline, do remember to make the check out to Hope for Tomorrow Mentoring, the beneficiary of this year’s race. Also, registration rates will go up after April 12th, from $28.25 to $35.00 so do register today!
However, you may say that you are not a runner, so why should you register? All walkers are welcome to participate in the Run for Hope 5K and you can even bring strollers! Walking is a great form of exercise and the Run for Hope 5K welcomes everybody, no matter what fitness or skill level you are at. And with all the freebies that you receive for participating besides the fact that all proceeds benefit a great cause, there is no reason not to register!
However, if you would like to run the race, be sure to check out the article entitled “Busy Moms: Give Running a Chance” on page 6 of the April/May issue of Valley Natural Foods’ This is Living Naturally magazine. Three busy moms give their tips and advice for including running as part of one’s fitness routine.
Bibs, swag bags and t-shirts must be picked up on Friday, May 3rd in-store at Valley Natural Foods’ demo kiosk from 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. There will be no race-day pickup of these items.
