Norwood Hospital, a part of the Steward Health Care System LLC (Steward), today announced its sponsorship of the 2nd Annual “Back on My Feet New Year’s Day 5K” and children’s fun run. The charity event gives local runners the opportunity to run alongside individuals transitioning out of homelessness and the proceeds support ongoing efforts to lift up the state’s most vulnerable residents.
“In addition to offering high quality health care, we are committed to making a positive impact on the communities we serve,” said Emily Holliman, President of Norwood Hospital. “Through this sponsorship, we are proud to support an organization that is supporting those in need.”
The 5k run, hosted by Charles River Running, begins at 10 AM on New Year’s Day at the Knights of Columbus (572 Nichols Street) in Norwood. The race is followed by a hot breakfast for runners.
“This event is a great opportunity to raise critical funds for a cause that impacts so many in Massachusetts. Running changes lives for the better and Back on My Feet is a vehicle for this change. ” said Charlotte Walsh of Charles River Running in Norwood. “We are thankful that Norwood Hospital is supporting our efforts to make this year’s race a success.”
