Normally, on a warm summer morning, 400 runners and walkers line up to start the race for Laurel House’s 5K.  The village is bustling; everyone is in place as the starting gun is fired.  You see smiling faces in team shirts and looks of determination from serious runners.   This year it will all look a little different.

Laurel House has decided for 2020 to make the 5K Virtual!  So what is a virtual 5K race?  A virtual race is a race that can be run or walked in any place of your choice.  This means you can complete the 3.1 miles on your treadmill, favorite trail, track, around the town or even around your yard!
Many races and events across the country have reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic by going virtual.  This allows participation at one’s own pace and place while social distancing.  The results are then sent in electronically and tallied after the race closes.  The first 200 participants are guaranteed a t-shirt.  
Laurel House is holding the virtual event July 1st – July 14th.  More information can be obtained from the Events tab on the Laurel House website (laurelhousecomfortcare.org).
Laurel House is a two-bed comfort care home located in Newark serving all of Wayne County.  It provides end of life care to those who are terminally ill with a prognosis of three months or less.  We come along side the families and assist with hands on care, medication oversight, and emotional and spiritual support.  Our main goal is to allow families to spend quality time with their loved one and to focus on living out their final days.  
Laurel House Comfort Care Home is not eligible for insurance reimbursement, nor does it charge a fee for services provided.  Therefore, we survive solely on donations from the community and fundraisers such as the annual Laurel House 5K.   “Virtually Together” – the 2020 Laurel House Virtual 5K will be a fun activity for all.
