5K Run and Walk

Sunday, September 10, 2017, in Hartford

HCRS held its first annual 5K Run and Walk as part of our 50th anniversary events. This inspiring event promoted community awareness of the services we provide, helped destigmatize developmental, mental health, and substance abuse disorders, and provided a venue for other community partners in health to set up exhibits/displays to further increase awareness of local resources.


The 5K was held at the Hartford High School in White River Junction, Vermont. A half-mile fun run for children, youth, and the young at heart was held in addition to the 5K. A great time was had by all.The winners for the 5K, overall and by age group, are provided below:
