NHS 5k Fundraiser for Belin Blank Children’s Hospital


Feeling like you need to burn a few calories for a good cause? NHS is hosting a 5k run at Ames High to fundraise for Blank Children’s Hospital this April! The run will take place on Saturday, April 22nd at 1:00 p.m. starting at the Ames High parking lot. The NHS goal for this event is $3,000. Registration costs are $20 and the proceeds will go to the Blank Children’s Hospital’s Oncology and the Blood Disorders Center to help those dealing with cancer across the state.

“It doesn’t seem like much but $20 does go a long way,” said Mr. Anthony Colburn, president of NHS for the 2022-23 year.

The registration link is down below, and there will be on-the-spot registration at the AHS parking lot on Saturday the 22nd that participants can sign up with. The event will open up at 12 p.m. and the run will begin directly at 1:00 p.m. so prepare yourselves for the monstrous feat you’ll be embarking on with this 5k, and show up early!
