Roots, Rock, Run 5k returns

On May 30th, the morning of the Roots Picnic, we will host our annual R3 race. Roots, Rock, Run 5k training and race is GrassROOTS’ public health initiative aimed at bringing awareness of the importance of physical activity and living healthy lives.


In an effort to prepare for the race, we are hosting four “meet-ups”. Join us on Kelly Drive at 9:00am on April 11, April 18, May 2 and May 16.


Location: NEW THIS YEAR – Martin Luther King Jr. Drive (near the Philadelphia Museum of Art). See map HERE
