The O'Bleness Health System is teaming up with the Ohio University Sports Administration Program and Athletes in Action to host the 3rd annual O'Bleness Health System Race For a Reason on April 26th. With the goal of raising $60,000 for charities and organizations and hosting over 800 participants, the O'Bleness Health System Race for a Reason is becoming the largest charity-based race event Athens has ever seen.Each participant is encouraged to "race for his or her own reason" by raising funds through pledges. With OHIO student organizations, clubs, fraternities, sororities and additional community organizations involved, it will be possible to increase awareness for a variety of "reasons" with personal meaning to members of the Athens community.
This event is the only one of its kind, as it combines the competition of racing with the compassion of community awareness. No other event in Athens has three individual races working simultaneously to promote philanthropy, health and wellness, and fun.
