Making a Joint Effort Fun Run
Saturday, January 9 2016 A Dignity Health Run Series Event

Please join us in making a joint effort to support orthopedic programs at Dignity Health in the East Valley at the Making It a Joint Effort Fun Run with a 5K, 1 mile and 100 yard dash. Proceeds will benefit the orthopedic programs at Chandler Regional and Mercy Gilbert Medical Centers.

Through monies raised at this event, we are able to expand the reach of our services by providing sports medicine training within our local high schools, equipment for joint replacement patients and fund the orthopedic loan closet for patients who cannot afford to purchase medical equipment upon discharge from the hospital. We help everyone from adolescents to seniors dealing with orthopedic conditions. The joint effort of people in our community will ensure programs and services can be delivered to those in need.


After the race, we will celebrate your success with Waffle Luv and
Coffee Run food trucks.
