CommunityCare Clinic 5K to support care to underserved April 11

The University of Toledo’s Spring for CommunityCare 5K Run/3K Walk is Saturday, April 11.

All proceeds benefit UT’s CommunityCare Clinics, which provide free health care to the uninsured and underserved in the greater Toledo area. The clinics, which are run by UT medical, nursing, pharmacy and physical therapy students, deliver care at the Mildred Bayer Clinic for the Homeless, 2101 Jefferson Avenue, and the CommunityCare Free Medical Clinic, which includes the CommunityCare Women’s Health Clinic at 2150 South Byrne Road.

Check-in is 8:30-9:15 a.m. in front of Mulford Library on UT’s Health Science Campus and the race begins at 9:30 a.m.

Free health screenings also will be offered on-site, including blood pressure, glucose, BMI and more. Race participation is not necessary to receive health screenings.

“Over the past two years, the Spring for CommunityCare 5K Run/3K Walk has registered more than 250 participants to support our student-run CommunityCare Clinics. The clinics provide free health care and health education to the greater Toledo area,” said Sudipa Biswas, a first-year medical student and director of this year’s event. “Events like the 5K and the tremendous support from members of the community allow the continued growth of the clinics as well as the medical supplies and tools necessary to provide health care to those in need.”
