Marshall Orthopaedics to host 9th Annual Joints Jog
BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. - After a three-year hiatus due to COVID, Marshall Orthopaedics will host its 9th Annual Joints Jog. The 5K run and mile walk will be held Saturday, May 14, at 8 a.m. at Barboursville Park.
Participants will experience a scenic course through the park’s rolling hills with the race starting and finishing at the lake. Certificates will be awarded for winners of age groups: 18-40, 40-65, 65+.
Registration is $30; however, participants who sign up before May 1 will receive a $5 discount. Race-day registration begins at 7:30 a.m., up until race time. Those who register before May 9 will be guaranteed a T-shirt.
All event proceeds will go to support Harmony House, an organization that seeks to end homelessness in the Huntington area. Harmony House is a multipurpose day shelter with access to social services, rehousing initiatives, case management, health services, and job training and readiness services.
“Marshall Orthopaedics is excited to resume the annual Joints Jog event as a touchstone for community engagement and promoting healthy habits,” said Micah Macaskill, M.D., a second-year orthopaedic surgery resident at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. “Runners and walkers of all ages are invited to join us in giving back to this worthy cause.”
