PCHS National Honor Society 5K supports meaningful causes
PARK CITY, Utah — It’s time to lace up your running shoes for the annual Park City Memorial 5K honoring fallen veterans and others who have passed as a way to carry on their legacies while raising money for charities. Each year the Park City High School National Honor Society organizes this community event as a way to give back to many.
The 5K will occur at Dozier Fields on May 27 at 9 am. Winners and raffle items will be announced after the race.
“This event is particularly special because of the people it honors, as many community members have allowed us to make banners in memory of their loved ones to place around the course,” said Noah Canada, president of the National Honor Society for Park City High School. “We were thrilled to have over 300 people join us in running last year, and we look forward to welcoming even more this year.”
This year, all funds raised from ticket sales and donations will support the following causes:
– Labs For Liberty: Pairing veterans or families of fallen veterans with service animals to help them heal, NHS partners with L4L to sponsor service animals and match them to Park City military families.
– Homeless Youth Center of Salt Lake: A nonprofit shelter dedicated to providing housing and resources to Utah’s homeless youth, charting them on a path to a better future in a supportive social and educational community.
– Padma Organization Service Trips: Many members will participate in humanitarian service projects in Rumicruz, Ecuador, this summer. Those members will work to create a community center that will support small businesses and help the area survive.
– NHS Community Scholarships: Financial awards to outgoing seniors who have dealt with and overcome life hardships. The NHS typically awards four scholarships each year to help with tuition for the first year of college.
