Berlin, VT – University of Vermont Health Network – Central Vermont Medical Center is hosting a 5 mile Fun Run/Walk around Berlin Pond in Berlin, Vt. on Saturday, June 25 as a fundraiser for the Health Care Share program. Start times are 8:45 a.m. for the free kid’s fun run and 9 a.m. for the adult race.
Health Care Share is a collaborative between UVM Health Network – Central Vermont Medical Center and the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps with support from Hunger Mountain Coop. The program provides local farm-fresh food along with nutrition education and healthy cooking classes to patients and community members in need. Each week of the growing season nearly 1,000 people receive a share of fruit, vegetables, herbs and pasture-raised poultry from the farm at VYCC.
“This public health initiative allows families access to balanced meals and exposure to foods that may not be in their normal diet,” said Robert Patterson, Vice President of Human Resources and Rehabilitation Services. “We are very excited to be raising money through the Fun Run for this important effort.”
Registration is $20.00 until June 10 and $25 on race day. The fee includes a race T-shirt. Race day registration will be from 7:30-8:30 a.m. at the Town Clerk’s office at 108 Shed Road in Berlin, Vt.
