      Great Chesapeake Bay Wellness Race Virtual 10k-5k-Fun Run

      Join us for the 17t Annual Great Chesapeake Bay Wellness Race - Now an all-Virtual, Thanksgiving Week event, organized by Eastern Shore Hospital Center

      "Be Thankful for Your Mental Health!"
       Saturday,  November 21 - Friday, November 27, 2020 

      For the last seventeen years, approximately 300 community members have joined our patients and staff on the second Saturday in May to help reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness. The National Mental Health Association seeks to create awareness about this illness and the possibly disabling consequences of this disease. A way to participate locally and promote good physical and mental health is with the Eastern Shore Hospital Center Auxiliary event.
      This year the Eastern Shore Hospital Center celebrates over 100 years of community-linked, recovery-focused care for mental illness. All proceeds directly benefit our patients, residents and special programs. This year, the CoVid-19 Pandemic has made our race go virtual, and just in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday!  A virtual race allows you to participate anywhere - and join with your family and friends.

      Our 17th annual Wellness Race and Family Walk will be held starting on Saturday November 21 - Friday November 27. Join together with your friends and family, near and far, during the week of Thanksgiving to run or walk and be thankful for your mental health, while you are helping those who are not so fortunate.
      Participation fees for the race for adults are $30 pre-registration for the 10K run, 5K 100th Anniversary Run/Walk and 3K Family Walk. There is no fee for youth under 12. The fee includes a commemorative tee shirt and race bib, and a chance to win prizes.

      The ESHC Auxiliary is a totally volunteer, 501 (c) 3 organization whose sole purpose is to provide patient services at the hospital.  The Auxiliary sponsors many special activities throughout the year. Approximately 69% of ESHC patients are deemed indigent and it is the Auxiliary’s goal to raise $10,000.00 a year in order to give those patients approximately $1.00 per day to use in the center’s café or gift shop.  100% of the proceeds from the Run/Walk will be given directly to our patients and patient programs.

The ESHC Auxiliary was chartered in 1952.  As a not for profit organization, our Auxiliary has a parallel mission with the Eastern Shore Hospital Center.  This mission is to provide the highest quality recovery-based continuum adult inpatient and transitional mental health services for eighty patients on the Eastern Shore.  We serve citizens of the counties of Cecil, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Talbot, Caroline, Dorchester, Wicomico, Somerset and Worcester.
