JSMC 5K Run Most Successful To Date

JSMC LOGO2 300CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Ky. (7/2/14) — The nineth annual JSMC Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine 5K Run was the most successful to date with over 240 runners crossing the finishing line Saturday morning, May 17 during Hopkinsville’s Little River Days.

This is the second year that JSMC has partnered with MWR at Ft. Campbell as part of the Eagle Fitness Challenge Tour.

This year with the generous sponsorship donations, the event raised $9,630 that will be used directly for the high school athletic programs in Christian, Todd and Trigg Counties.

Jennie Stuart’s Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine Center is located at 1811 E. 9th, and has been spearheading this event for the past 9 years to provide necessary medical supplies for the tri-county high school athletic programs. Todd Hancock, Director of JSMC’s Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine Center said, “Jennie Stuart has been generous in their donation of the Athletic Trainers time at high school athletic practices and events.

The money raised by this 5K is used specifically for bandages, ice packs and all the supplies necessary for the trainers to take care of the student athletes.”

This year’s race was one of the first in the community to utilize a portion of Hopkinsville’s Rails to Trails. The race began on Bethel, then to 15th street, utilizing a portion of the nearly completed Rails to Trails project. A new electronic bib reading timing system was used this year that allowed for better efficiency and runner placement. DeeAnna Yates, JSMC Communication Liaison stated, “This new system, along with the support from the region and the hospital and community volunteers, will help this event to continue to grow.”
