Evening 5K Walk/Run to Benefit Speech and Hearing Program

Adena Rehabilitation’s Hearing and Speech Awareness 5k Walk/Run is scheduled for Saturday, May 18, 2013 beginning at 7:15 p.m.  The event is an all new, evening road race through the streets of Chillicothe. The race will begin and end at Yoctangee Park, located in downtown Chillicothe.

Communication disorders can impact patients of all ages. Some are present at birth, while others may be due to aging, a medical condition, or an injury.  Rehabilitation and treatment can improve the quality of life for those who experience problems speaking, understanding and hearing. The Walk/Run is to bring attention to these disorders and the impact they have on our patients.

There is a $25 pre-registration fee ($30 on race day), and all proceeds from the event will go to the Adena Health Foundation’s Speech and Hearing Fund.  Walkers and runners will receive a race bag and a glow necklace to wear for the evening event.  There will also be a silent auction and prizes for top finishers.  Participants may register after 6:30 p.m. on the evening of the event, or pre-register online.
