ICHS Foundation today opened registration for the annual 2021 Lunar New Year 5k at www.ichs.com/5k.
Beginning on the first week of the Lunar New Year Feb 12th – 18th, the Lunar New Year Virtual 5k’s new format provides more flexibility for participation. Registrants choose their own course and personal day to race, while encouraging safely physically distancing during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Race proceeds fund patient health care access
All race proceeds will fund patient health services for families who could not otherwise afford them.
“Its been a tough year, and ICHS has been on the frontlines caring for patients and our communities.” says Ron Chew, ICHS Foundation Director, “This event is a way for us all to celebrate a new, better year ahead and support our patients.”
The event is hosted by the ICHS Foundation, a separate non-profit that fundraises year round to support ICHS’s patients with free or low-cost health services. The COVID-19 pandemic and disruptions to the health insurance coverage for many Washington residents highlights the importance of providing affordable health care access to anyone who needs it.

The Lunar New Year Virtual 5k is open to all ages. Participants run or walk the course of their choice during the first week of the Lunar New Year (Feb. 12-18, 2021). Registration is $35 with an early bird discounted price of $30 ending Jan. 12, 2021. Attendees under 14 or 65 and older can participate for free.
