Runners, walkers and volunteers… take your mark and run to the rescue!
On February 4th, 2017, The Harrigan Foundation is hosting the second annual Run to the Rescue 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk to help First Responders who suffer from addiction and/or trauma disorders. The event is sponsored by Palm Partners and Palm Health Care. The race begins at 7:15 a.m. at 340 South Ocean Blvd. in Delray Beach, FL. The run is slated to be an annual event.
Honoring the great deal of devotion, sacrifice and compassion it takes to become one of these every day heroes, The Harrigan Foundation has devoted itself to honoring the valiant individuals who work tirelessly to protect life and liberty.
This includes the amazing and courageous men and women who serve as:
• Police Officers
• Military Officials
“These heroes have already done so much for us, and it is a chance for a call to action in order to give back,” Foundation Director Doris Harrigan said.
Sponsor a Hero
The Run to the Rescue 5K/1 mile walk will be a fun and exciting way to help raise money to fund the Palm Healthcare scholarship program in order to sponsor any treatment our First Responders may need.
Sponsors and supporters for the race currently include Palm Healthcare, RECO Intensive, Beach.com, SC Advertising, Dawn Wagner-Statefarm, Printer’s Choice, Inc., Gallagher, Orange Theory, and Royal Life Centers:
