Mercy's 5K Stroke Awareness Run5K starting line

Mercy Medical Center's 6th annual 5K Stroke Awareness Run is being held on Saturday, May 6th! 

This fun run is held to educate participants on the signs and symptoms of a stroke. All the money raised goes straight into our Primary Care Stroke Program. This year’s 5k event will be chipped timed, which means you can have your race results emailed or texted to you when you cross the finish line. The end of the race brings you right to our Family Festival where there will be free health screenings, as well as many family friendly activities.

Team Challenge

For the past three years we have challenged community groups, businesses, and friends to create teams to participate in the race. We would like to extend that challenge again this year by asking you to form a team of 5 or more participants. We encourage you to be creative with your team name and outfits for race day. Awards will be given for the team with the most members, the team with the best race day costume, and the team with the best selfie!
