Get Your Race On!

Join us for the 14th Annual Ambulance Chase 5K/1 Mile
Presented by Donald Martens and Sons Ambulance Services
Sunday, May 3, 2015

The Ambulance Chase features a scenic western Lakewood course, B-Tag timing and great food.

Run for Fun at our NEW timed 1 Mile Race.  
The mile is making a comeback … distance isn't the only measure of respect.

This year’s Ambulance Chase continues a tradition of fun and fitness.  Entry fees will help to offset the cost of the event.  Money available after expenses are paid will be used in 2015 to support current and emerging needs of patients served by Lakewood Hospital. 

Lakewood Hospital Foundation is proud to continue this highly anticipated annual event and appreciates the overwhelming support from the Lakewood Hospital family and community, who together have helped to provide over $475,000 to enhance patient care at Lakewood Hospital.

See you at the finish line!
