Registration still open for OMCares’s May run/walk

The finish line is in sight.

Organizers of the OMCares’ May Virtual Run/Walk say they have raised about 88 percent of their overall goal of $10,000 as participants, run and walk a 5k, 10k, half-marathon, full marathon or relay race on their own sometime during the month of May, then post their results.

Fnds raised help OMCares, an organization that provides emergency funds for employees who aren’t able to work.

There is still time to register for the event; register at runsignup.com/Race/WA/PortAngeles/OMCares. Or to donate directly to OMCares, go to runsignup.com/Race/Donate/WA/PortAngeles/OMCares.

Free to all OMC employees, registration fee for others is $20.

All registered participants receive a vintage North Olympic Discovery Marathon shirt (T-shirt or long sleeve), finisher medal and race bib. Shirts and medals are donated by the Port Angeles Marathon Association from their past events.

Participants can complete it all in one day or throughout the month.

OMCares is an organization whose mission is “supporting one another in our time of adversity.” Started in November of 1998, it is an employee grass roots organization independent of Olympic Medical Center that is supported entirely by employee contributions and fundraisers.

As of May 24, 390 participants have registered for the May Virtual Run/Walk. To date 111 participants have donated an additional $3640.00.

The Port Angeles Marathon Association (non-profit organization) , the same organization that organizes the North Olympic Discovery Marathon and the Run the Peninsula Race Series to date has donated $5,850 in supplies, so that 100 percent of funds received go to OMCares.
