This year’s BlueCross Riverbend Run and Walk will benefit T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital at Erlanger through the health plan’s generous donation of $5 of each participant’s entry fee and matching up to $5,000. The proceeds will go towards the hospital’s mission in providing the highest level of medical care for sick and injured children in our region.
The BlueCross Riverbend Run and Walk will take place on Saturday, June 7 at 8 a.m. at Riverfront Parkway on new courses beginning and ending at the Riverbend Festival location and will feature a 5K, 10K and 1 mile Fun Run for all ages and skill levels.
The 5K and 10K races are competitive events with overall cash prizes and age and gender category awards. Both courses are UST&F certified. The Fun Run & Walk is a noncompetitive event designed to encourage everyone, including families, to take steps towards a healthy lifestyle. Wheelchairs and strollers are encouraged during the fun run.
There will also be live entertainment on the Budlight Stage and a family fun area with rides and activities for children.
Entry fees are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors 60 years or older and for children under 12 years, and $18 for Fun Run & Walk.
