Foundation Events

The Johnston Health Foundation is well known for several annual events. Our events provide a great opportunity for businesses and the community to work together and contribute to a great cause. Over the years, these events have made a huge impact in raising funds and awareness for the Foundation and its mission to support the programs and services of Johnston Health.

Events coming up next:

Foundation Champions 5K and 10K

Johnston Health Champions 5K & 10K Goes Virtual!

Saturday, April 4, 2020

This may seem like an obstacle in our path, but we can still reach the finish line…together!

After careful consideration of recommendations concerning the COVID-19 virus, we have decided to make the 2020 Champions 5K/10K a VIRTUAL walk/run. Our top priority is protecting you, but we know a great need still exists in our community. To continue providing support to the Heart Fund and Healthy Kids Fund, we can’t quit before we start. We invite you to be a part of this exciting new virtual walk/run concept – at your own pace, in your own space!
