Join a rat race that promotes good health and makes a difference. International Community Health Services (ICHS) today opened registration for its annual Lunar New Year 5k Walk / Run at: www.ichs.com/5k.
This year’s fundraiser takes place along Shoreline’s Interurban Trail on Feb. 23, 2020 in celebration of the Year of the Rat. All proceeds will support health services for community members who could not otherwise afford them. Festivities will include a traditional lion dance for good fortune and firecrackers to chase away evil spirits in honor of the Lunar New Year, the most important Chinese holiday.
“ICHS Foundation looks forward to a great event that brings the community together in support of local families,” said Ron Chew, ICHS Foundation director.
Registration is $35 with an early bird discount price of $30 until Dec. 31. Attendees under 14 or 65 and older can participate for free. Participants will receive a time chip, bib, Lunar New Year 5k tee-shirt and other special giveaways from ICHS and event vendors. Free parking is available at Shoreline City Hall and ICHS Shoreline Clinic.
