Event description
Welcome to the SECOND ANNUAL RUN YOUR LIFE 5K, hosted by the URI Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, benefitting the Jim Gillen Teen Center.

About this Event

Welcome to the SECOND ANNUAL RUN YOUR LIFE 5K, hosted by the URI Doctor of Physical Therapy Program and benefitting the Jim Gillen Teen Center, a youth recovery center under the umbrella of The Providence Center.

This event was launched in 2018 in response to the rising opioid epidemic in Rhode Island and the American Physical Therapy Association's national #ChoosePT campaign. In the CDC's 2016 statistics, Rhode Island was ranked as the 9th highest state in the country for drug overdose mortality rates. That number dropped by 16% in 2017, and we hope to see those numbers fall even more in the coming years. Our state also has one of the highest rates of drug use for youth age 12-17 in the nation, at 15.5% percent (vs. the national average of 9.2%).

As aspiring healthcare professionals, our mission for the Run Your Life 5K is to promote multidisciplinary strategies and to inform the community of safer and more appropriate options for pain management.

The entirety of the proceeds from the Run Your Life 5K will be donated directly to the Jim Gillen Teen Center.

This event also offers access to local resources, advice, and activities a our Healthy Lifestyles Expo, which will feature a number of stations with graduate and undergraduate students from various aspects of healthcare. The Expo will offer take-home information that you can use to promote your own healthy lifestyle, or gather for loved ones.

Registration fees are $20 in advance and $25 day-of. Each participant will receive one raffle ticket with their ticket purchase. Additional donations can be mailed or given at the registration table on the day of the event, and will be recognized with additional raffle tickets per the following structure:

Additional donations of $3 will earn 1 ticket, $5 for 2 tickets, $10 for 15 tickets, and $20 for 40 tickets. Donations above $20 will earn tickets per this pricing as well.

The first 100 participants will receive a "swag bag" along with their t-shirt!
