Welcome to the NEW Rochester Regional Health Flower City Challenge Community Chest! For the 10th anniversary of Flower City we wanted to create an opportunity for charities to showcase themselves and raise money. Organizations that raise over $5000 by April 20th will have the opportunity to host a table inside Blue Cross Arena during the pre and post race activities in our Community Chest Village. Organizations can create their team then solicit for folks to join them in raising awareness and funds for their charity.
This Community Chest is fully subsidized by Fleet Feet & YellowJacket Racing so that all charities need to do is raise money. We wanted to provide a platform whereby local charities can gain awareness and money to help their cause at zero cost to them.
The Rochester Regional Health Flower City Challenge (April 28, 2019) showcases the historical and cultural riches of Rochester, NY including but not limited to the Susan B Anthony area, Park Avenue and East Avenue neighborhoods, Highland Park, Mt Hope Cemetery, Corn Hill Landing area and Downtown.
Participants can chose to run or walk a half marathon, 5K or 2-person half marathon relay. All of the events start and finish at the Blue Cross Arena at the Rochester War Memorial (1 Exchange Blvd, Rochester).
It is a participatory and spectator friendly event that showcases the culture, history, neighborhoods and river ways of Rochester, NY.
Donating or creating a team does not provide automatic entry into the event. You will still need to register for your the event of your choice, here.
