Run the River Bank Run with Still I Run


Mental Health, Running / Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

If you don’t have your spring race calendar set up yet (and even if you do), you should join Still I Run at the River Bank Run on May 12. Last year, over thirty Still I Run community members ran the race to help raise funds for Pine Rest Mental Health Services. In all, we raised over $12,000 which went to Pine Rest’s Patient Assistance fund which goes to help people in financial need get mental health care at Pine Rest

This year we want to do it again and everyone is invited to sign up! You have the choice of running the 5K, 10K, or 25K. As a fundraiser for Pine Rest, you’ll pledge to raise at least $100 to support their patient assistance fund. One hundred percent of every dollar you raise goes directly to individuals and families that need mental health help.

Perks for Team PR Pacing members include:

  • Team PR Pacing – Still I Run t-shirt.
  • Goodie bag on race day with Pine Rest swag, snacks and more.
  • Free training events offer the chance to meet up with other Team PR Pacing runners.
  • Secured bag check at the Pine Rest booth on race day.
  • Tour of Pine Rest so you can see for yourself how your fundraising dollars are changing lives.
  • … and much more!
