Gather Named a Co-Beneficiary of 14th Annual Portsmouth “Out of Hibernation” 5K RaceMarch 06, 2018
Portsmouth, NH – It’s been a crazy winter. Epic highs and lows with regard to the thermometer. Mother Nature clearly had no solid intention of making up her mind. That said, the cabin fever has remained consistently in line with all of us here in the northeast. It’s time to get back outside. And, in true form, the Portsmouth Free Masons have once again prompted the ideal event to get us back on the road and in the spirit of placing one foot in front of the other in a successive manner.
The 14th annual “Out of Hibernation” 5K is back for another 3-mile lap around town with proceeds to once gain benefit Gather and our quest to remediate hunger here in Seacoast, New Hampshire.
“We’re so grateful of the continued communal support to help us facilitate our mission of providing healthy food options to those who otherwise wouldn’t have the means to alleviate their hunger,” said Gather Executive Director Deb Anthony. “I’ve got a fresh pair of laces and some new insoles and am ready to step up to the line with my fellow community members to set the pace in outrunning hunger one small step at a time. Together we can make great strides.”
The race – which is scheduled for Saturday, April 14th at 9am – is open to runners/joggers/walkers of all ages and ability levels. Pre-registration is open and t-shirts will be granted to the first 175 runners/walkers that sign up. Visit: www.outofhibernation5k.com for more information.
