The RCI 5k

Fun Run/ Walk!

With vaccine rollout going smoothly and the warmer days ahead, the Rochester Community Initiative is hosting a 5K Fun Run on Saturday, May 29th from 1-3:30 pm at Soldiers Field


The purpose of this event (outside of getting some steps in after a sedentary winter) is to raise environmental awareness, partner with local businesses, and create a platform for Rochester’s youth to discuss environmental issues.


50% of the revenue made from fundraising will be donated to local nonprofits and environmental groups as well as being used to fund the RCI community garden. The event is family-friendly and a great way to reconnect with community members safely. No need to be an experienced runner (that’s great if you are though!), if you are able to walk the course and have some time on your hands we would love to see you there! We’ll be providing goodie bags for all who register and local businesses/organizations will table as well.

(Below are two links, one is to sign up to volunteer to help out with the event, and the other is to register for the 5k!)
