Spring into health this April at Bayhealth’s Second Annual Nurse on the RuN 5K Walk/Run to benefit nursing education. The event will be held on Saturday, April 6 at 10 a.m. at the Wild Quail Country Club in Camden-Wyoming, Delaware.
This fundraiser stems from Bayhealth’s participation in the American Nurses Association 2017 Year of the Healthy Nurse Healthy Nation challenge, which encourages nurses to be the healthiest versions of themselves. The first 5K was held in March 2018 to much success. “We had a great turn out with the first race, and we’re hoping to make the second 5K an even bigger event,” says Bayhealth Cancer Institute Manager Stephanie McClellan, MSN, RN, CMSRN.
New to the event is a health fair at the end of the 5K, which will feature health screenings, mental health information and more. The family-friendly race will also have activities for children. Proceeds will go toward nursing education. “We want the 5K to be a family-friendly event where families can come out, get some exercise, learn how to live healthier lifestyles, and have fun,” said Clinical Informatics Nurse Lindsey Klemash, MSN, RN. “We love hosting this event because it not only encourages a healthy lifestyle for the community, but raises money for professional development for Bayhealth nurses. Monies raised will help nurses become better caregivers.”
The Bayhealth Foundation is partnering with nursing on the event. While aimed at nurses, the 5K is open to everyone, including the community. Registration is $25 until March 29 and then will increase to $30 on race day. Participants will receive a TECH shift. Visit TriSportsEvents.com to register.
