2019 OhioHealth O'Bleness Hospital Race for a Reason:
Ohio University Sports Administration and Valor are teaming up with OhioHealth O’Bleness Hospital to host the 8th Annual OhioHealth Race for a Reason. Last year, more than 775 people participated in one of the four on-campus events, and the race raised upwards of $45,000 for 45+ charities, non-profits, and student organizations. The OhioHealth Race for a Reason is the only event of this kind: combining the competition of racing with the compassion of the Athens community. This year, the race hopes to surpass last year’s totals and raise over $65,000 while hosting over 900 participants. Join us in reaching these goals and sign up today!
