Community Health Center, Inc. and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield are proud to be presenting the inaugural CHC Meriden 5k: Race for Mental Health. The event will take place at Hubbard Park in Meriden, CT on Saturday, May 11th, and will feature a 5k run, a Health Walk, and a Kids Fun Run.
The 5k and Health Walk will take place on the hill at Hubbard Park, so come prepared to get a good workout for a great cause. The theme of the Kids Fun Run will be Superheroes – kids will be able to decorate capes and masks after they are done running. Kids can also visit with Spiderman and get their face painted!
