Make plans to join us on Saturday, April 22, 2017 for the final Give it Away 5K!
Five years ago, Give it Away 5K – The Lorrie Shetterly Memorial Event – was born! This event was created from a desire to raise funds to support the Comfort Therapies provided by UnityPoint Hospice. We wanted the event to be a fun, family event to honor the legacy of Lorrie Shetterly. We have had four amazing events thus far and have appreciated the incredible community support for this great cause!
We also recognize that there are an abundance of 5K Run/Walk events in the Des Moines area, with the number of events on any given weekend continuing to grow each year. Many, like ours, are small, local, non-profit groups hosting an event supporting local causes. Others are much bigger, national travelling events with corporate sponsorship, who choose Des Moines for it’s vibrant, active community members. The annual coordination of all the necessary components to host this event has become more challenging each year for an event our size.
As a result, we are announcing that Saturday April 22, 2017 will be our 5th and final Give it Away 5K! But wait!! We are planning many “extras” this year to celebrate the amazing success of this event and to express our gratitude to those who have so generously supported it! You won’t want to miss it! Many more details will be announced as we finalize them! Be sure to watch this website and our Facebook page for more information!
