Get ready to set your own Tempo with our FORTE Run Your Way walk/run. Participation options are 1 mile, 5K, 10K, Half, or Full Marathon. National Fitness Day falls on the first Saturday in May and gives everyone the opportunity to renew their fitness goals and make positive lifestyle changes. And it’s easier than most people think – all you have to do is take the first step and make the decision to participate in healthy activities.
In honor of our walk/run, RedSail is going to donate to the NCPA Foundation. Established in 1953, the NCPA Foundation advances independent community pharmacy through scholarships to pharmacy students, research/programs to improve the success of independent pharmacy and patient care, community health awareness programs, and aid to community pharmacy owners for their recovery in the event of disaster or other adverse circumstances. The foundation is completely autonomous and relies on external support from individuals and corporations to maintain its far-reaching programs – including those that help develop the future leaders and entrepreneurs of the community pharmacy profession.
Our race is open from Sunday, April 25 – Saturday, May 8. You must post your results to receive a t-shirt.
