WICKED FIT 5K RUNNING FOR ITS SIXTH YEAR IN CONCORD

Families in Transition’s Halloween-Themed Fundraiser to “Chase Away Homelessness”

CONCORD, NH – Families in Transition (FIT) a homeless service provider with locations in Concord, Manchester, Dover, and a new location coming to Wolfeboro, NH, is hosting its sixth annual Wicked FIT Run on Saturday, October 28, 2017, at 9:30 a.m. at Rollins Park in Concord, NH. The race is a family-friendly, costume-themed, certified 5K dedicated to “chasing away homelessness.” Funds raised will provide a home and hope to homeless families and individuals.

FIT’s goal for the Concord race this year is to have 750 participants and to raise $50,000 through registrations, sponsorships, and peer-to-peer fundraising. The event, which started in 2011, has raised over $100,000, which is enough for the organization to cover the costs of housing and services for 20 people experiencing homelessness for an entire year.

Wicked FIT Run participants are encouraged to create teams and dress in costume. Prizes will be awarded in several costume categories, as well as race finish times.

The cost to register before the event is $20 for adults over 20, $15 for individuals ages 11-19, and free for kids younger than 10. Registration will be available the day of the race for an additional $5. To register before the event, visit www.fitnh.org/wickedfitrun.
