Run for Freedom & Hula Hustle: Helping The Homeless Get Back on Their Feet
Are you considering stepping up from 5K distances to a half marathon in the fall but don’t know how to get there? Have you considered a 10K? There are two great southern New Hampshire races coming up that feature both 5K and 10K distances, and both raise funds for very worthy causes.
First up is the Greater Derry Track Club’s Run For Freedom on July 4th. 100% of the proceeds from this event benefit Liberty House in Manchester, NH. Liberty House is a safe, supportive, substance-free housing community for American veterans transitioning out of homelessness. The 5K and 10K races start and finish at Pinkerton Academy in Derry, NH. SWAG includes a short sleeve tech race jersey adorned with an American Flag. For more information, visit the GDTC web site at: http://www.gdtc.org/
Two weeks later on July 17th the Executive Health and Sports Center in Manchester is host to the Hula Hustle, held in memory of Bill Kelley. This Hawaiian-themed 5K and 10K race features a Luau BBQ at the pool-side Tiki Bar (beer ticket included for 21+), grass skirts, leis, and a silent auction with great prizes such as Red Sox and concert tickets, restaurant gift certificates and more. New Horizons for NH, a food pantry and homeless shelter in Manchester is the charitable beneficiary for this event. (All participants and their families are welcome to use the pool and other Executive facilities after the race). For more information, visit the event website at: http://www.hulahustle.org/
