Get ready to race at Lakewood Hospital Ambulance Chase

Join friends, family, neighbors and the West Side community at the 12th annual Lakewood Hospital Ambulance Chase on Sunday, May 5, at Lakewood Park. Proceeds from the race will benefit Lakewood Hospital’s Rehabilitation Services and patient care programs.

Presented by longtime supporter Donald Martens & Sons, the Ambulance Chase is for everyone – from the youngest among us to the serious runner to the leisurely walker – and includes a 5K Run/Walk, 1 Mile Walk, and Children’s Chase. The registration fee for the 5K Walk/Run and 1 Mile Walk is $20 through April 22 and $25 from April 23 through race day. Teams of 10 or more receive a 10 percent discount ($18/participant) if team member names and fees are submitted together by April 22. Only pre-registered walk and run participants receive a race shirt.

The Live Well Lakewood Children’s Chase (ages 8 and under) includes a ¾-mile course around Lakewood Park. There is no fee to participate, but pre-registration is required and all participants receive a medal.

"Since its inception, the Ambulance Chase has generated nearly $400,000 to help enhance programs and services at Lakewood Hospital, including emergency medicine, diabetes management assistance, radiology, surgery and community outreach,” said Kristin Broadbent, executive director of Lakewood Hospital Foundation, which raises funds exclusively for Lakewood Hospital. “This year’s race will benefit patients utilizing Lakewood Hospital’s full continuum of rehabilitation services and patient care programs.”
