Murphy Medical Center is hosting its 21st annual “Two Hours from Anywhere” 5K Challenge, 2-mile Heart Walk and Kids’ Fun Run on Saturday, Sept. 17, at the hospital.
“About 350 participants came out last year to stretch their legs in the races, get their hearts pumping, and compete for awards or ‘personal best’ times,” said Kathi Osborne, Foundation Director at the hospital. “Our race is always for a good cause which benefits our area, and we appreciate the community’s support of this fun, energized event.”
This year’s road race will benefit scholarships which the non-profit hospital’s Foundation provides to area students who are pursuing college degrees in healthcare-related fields. In 2011, Murphy Medical Center provided $35,000 in scholarships to 20 area students.
