During the season of giving, take part in our Gobble Waddle 5K and 10K walk run to support the Heart Fund and Healthy Kids Fund. In addition, we invite you to bring canned goods to donate to our partner food bank agency in support of those in need right here in our community.
The Gobble Waddle is part of the Johnston Health Race Series. Now, you can register for both the Champions 5K/10K and the Gobble Waddle 5K/10K (in one transaction each year).Two great races for two great causes - the Johnston Health Foundation Heart Fund & Healthy Kids Fund. Visit www.johnstonhealth.org/raceseries to learn more about the Champions 5K/10K and to register for both events. Note: Registration for the Johnston Health Race Series is only available until April 4 (the date of the first series event. After the Champions 5K/10K, participants may register for the Gobble Waddle and still be a series participant, but will not benefit from registering in one transaction).
Welcome to 12th Annual Johnston Health Gobble Waddle event presented by HealthQuest Fitness and Wellness Center. It is a timed run and fun walk event for all ages and fitness levels – definitely family, stroller, and dog friendly. Please remember that all dog participants must be friendly and on a fixed leash at all times. Owners must also be sure to clean up behind their dogs.
The Thanksgiving holiday is a time of giving and it’s important to remember those in our community who need your help. All participants are asked to bring at least five items of canned food to the event or drop them off at HealthQuest. Canned goods will be donated to our partner food bank agencies right here in our community.
