Description

_The 2021 Día de los Muertos Run-Walk:

The Gardner Health Services Día de los Muertos Run-Walk is back for 2021! This year is special and brings even greater meaning to the holiday and our event. We dedicate this race to the millions of lives lost around the world due to COVID-19 and almost 2,000 lives we've lost in our very own community. We also honor all the frontline workers who continue to brave the pandemic. They helped our communities safely through the past year and a half and continue to serve as heroes. This fundraising event and health initiative will safely bring together patients, staff, families and the community in celebration of life, health, and the lives of those we love eternally. 

The event will feature a family-friendly 5k and 10k run-walk route with the option to participate virtually. There will also be a community health fair. 

All state and county COVID-19 safety procedures will be followed on race day. We will closely monitor any changes and will adjust accordingly to ensure our event is safe for all participants. We will communicate to all participants if any changes occur.
