Celebrating 50 years of making our communities well with 50 acts of wellness

Rite Aid Station Visits the Steamtown Marathon

When: Sunday, October 7

Where: Scranton, PA

It felt great getting back to our roots in Scranton, PA.  From our first store in 1962, to celebrating our 50th Anniversary; it’s an amazing feeling.  But an even better feeling is that we were able to give back to the community that helped us get our start all those years ago. 

We were thrilled to take part in the 17th Annual Steamtown Marathon, a 26.2 mile marathon benefitting the St. Joseph’s Center in Scranton, PA.  We set up our Rite Aid Station near the end of the race to support runners in front of the very first Rite Aid, handing out over 800 bottles of water and healthy snacks.  We also had a sign making station so supporters could keep runners feeling encouraged throughout the race.
