NEA Baptist Physical Therapy Team plans 5K to benefit HopeCircle

JONESBORO, Ark. – The team at NEA Baptist Clinic Physical Therapy has always been dedicated to giving back to the local community through various service projects. They are now organizing the second annual Hope Run 5K to benefit HopeCircle, a free community program of NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation. The 5K will take place Saturday, August 26.

The race organizer, Brian Lewis, physical therapy assistant, says, “We decided to do a fundraiser for HopeCircle because we feel like the services they provide are so important and touch so many lives yet many people are not aware of what they do. They provide a service that is invaluable to people that are in a very trying time in their lives and truly make a difference in the lives of those patients.” He continued on to say, “We chose to do a 5k to help raise money and awareness for HopeCircle and to also encourage the community to get active and promote a healthy lifestyle.”

The race is a certified 5K course and will begin at 8 am on Saturday August 26 from 909 Enterprise Drive (off Windover). Those interested in running can sign-up online now through August 24th at runsignup.com or they may register the day of the event. The cost of registration is $25.
