Fletcher’s 5K

Sat / October 16, 2021
9:00 am – 12:00 pm / Ada Hayden Heritage Park, 5205 Grand Ave., Ames

Fletcher’s 5k is in support of The Fletcher Foundation , whose mission is to walk alongside families after they experience miscarriage or stillbirth. The foundation provides financial assistance toward hospital/medical bills as well as emotional resources and referrals to additional programs and services. All event proceeds will go directly to help further this mission.

Fletcher’s 5K is sponsored by Mary Greeley Medical Center’s Birthways unit. This is the second annual (first in-person) “Fletcher’s 5k.” Like last year, there is  a virtual option available.

The event begins at 9 a.m. on Oct. 16. The sanctioned 5k run starts at 9:45 a.m., and a 1k family walk will start at 10 a.m.

Cost is $35/person, $10/kids aged 5-14 (excludes shirt). With registration, adult participants will receive an event shirt. This is a sanctioned 5k by True Time Racing; official times will be posted online after the event.
