Ahoy, maties! Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Yo ho! Yo ho! Ahoy, scallywags, it be Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Who doesn’t love being a pirate? While talking like a pirate is fun and definitely will turn some heads – how about dressing like a pirate and running a 5K??!!

RTR Pirate PrincessWe may be months out from our 2020 Rock the Run 5K: Pirates vs Princess but today is a perfect day to go ahead and mark your calendar for our upcoming 5K on Saturday, April 25th at Fairgrounds Park in Hagerstown!

Talk Like a Pirate Day is a perfect time to invite others to join you in participating (running, walking, strolling, hobbling on your peg leg) or volunteering for our race. It’s a great activity for friends, small groups, landlubbers, coworkers, youth groups, mermaids, teams, buccaneers, and just yourself!

And it’s a perfect family activity too! With a 1 Mile Kids Fun Run prior to the 5K and pirate/princess themed kids activities during the 5K this is a great opportunity to bring the whole family out, dress up, have fun and raise money for a great cause!

Pirate and princess costumes are encouraged but not required to participate or volunteer. But the more the merrier to help make this a one-of-a-kind event in Hagerstown! To get some great ideas or complete your pirate/princess costumes check out Party City or other Halloween costumes stores now for a huge selection of items!

Have a great day, scallywags, and we’ll see ye in April!

You Ready to Rock the Run?

It won’t be long until we host our first 5K Race/Walk in Hagerstown!

Our Rock the Run: A Race for Hope will take place on Saturday, April 25th at Fairgrounds Park in Hagerstown.

5k Race Sign Feb 1

We are dedicated to helping our neighbors who are homeless & hungry get the shelter, food, and support they need during tough times. This race is just another way for all of our friends in the area to come together and show support and love for those who are struggling.

Money raised through this race will help to fund our homeless (transient) shelter which operates every day of the year. We provide hot showers, toiletries, food, and a warm bed for thousands of homeless people each year.

And we’ve been providing these same services to people since 1955 at no cost to our guests or the tax payer! 

Participating in this race helps to make sure that the less fortunate have a safe, comfortable and loving place to rest, relax, and refresh all in the name of Christ.

You ready to help? Go to http://www.rocktherunhagerstown.com to register. And be sure to spread the word to your family, friends, coworkers, church, civic clubs, and more!

We’ll also have our donation trucks available at the race if you have gently used items for our Thrift Stores and Family Assistance ministry as well as food items for our food bank.
