When: Saturday, June 16
Where: Hershey, PA
Over 100 Rite Aid corporate associates participated in the company’s annual “Couch To 5K” event, ending with a 5K on June 16, 2012. Associates joined hundreds of other runners and walkers for the 9th Annual Chocolate Miracle 5K Race in Hershey, PA, which raised funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at the Penn State Children’s Hospital. Rite Aid is a title sponsor for the race, which has doubled in attendance this year.
Rite Aid’s participation in the race began several years ago as part of a corporate initiative to emphasize health and fitness for associates. A “Couch to 5K” program helped participating Rite Aid associates train for the 5K, leading up to the race.
