Boys & Girls Club to host 5K race

The Boys & Girls Club of Huntington County is thrilled to announce the return of the “Running Towards Great Futures” 5K race, as part of the 175th Heritage Days Festival celebration in Huntington. Taking place on Saturday, June 17, this event promises a fun-filled day of fitness, community engagement, and support for the Keystone Club, a teen program empowering the youth of Huntington County. Keystone Club is an initiative providing leadership development opportunities and activities for local teens. Focusing on three key areas - academic success, career preparation, and community service - Keystone aims to equip young individuals with the necessary tools to become caring, productive, and responsible citizens of Huntington County. The proceeds from the “Running Towards Great Futures” 5K race will directly benefit the Keystone Club as they raise money for their National Conference. The race will commence at Huntington University at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. Runners make their way down Jefferson Street. The finish line awaits at the Boys & Girls Club, where refreshments will welcome participants. A bus shuttle provided by HCCSC will be available at the end of the race, ensuring access back to the race start at Huntington University. Due to the Heritage Days parade, participants are required to complete the course within 1.5 hours. The Boys & Girls Club officials extend heartfelt gratitude to their Gold Sponsor, Parkview Huntington Hospital, for their support. Additionally, they express appreciation to their Silver Sponsors, MidWest America Federal Credit Union and Angela Becker Orthodontics, for their valuable contributions to the success of this event.
