Come, join us on September 22, 2018 at the North Park Boat House at 9:30am. Run. Have fun. Help someone. Registration starts at 8:00am.

Here is a snippet from the run from 2017.


Healthcare is the first pillar of our fund raising efforts. We are supporting healthcare for women, children and families.


Our second pillar is Education. We are committed to supporting the education efforts of Women, Children and Homeless people.


We have been supporting efforts to ensure the safety of our Fire Fighters, Police Officers — by raising funds for equipment and ongoing training.


Homelessness has been one of the cornerstones that PIC5K has focused on since its inception, supporting organizations such as Homeless Children Education Fund, Primary Care Health Services and Mary’s Market at Chartier’s Center.
