2020 We Are Patterson 5K Run/Walk

Stay connected through movement, even though we're safely apart!

Join Well Together, Take FIVE, Patterson UNITES, and the Patterson Foundation with a 5K fun run/walk. We've been apart for too long, so it's time to come together virtually a celebrate being Team Patterson. Share your Patterson pride by participating in the first-ever We Are Patterson 5K run/walk, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting NAMI, a national nonprofit that focuses on building awareness of and supporting mental health and mental illness. Will you join us?

How Does this Run/Walk Work?

  • Patterson employees and members of their household are eligible to complete a socially-distant 5K run or walk.
  • The registration fee is $25 per person and each participant will receive a race tshirt to celebrate the event. A portion of the proceeds will be a tax-deductible donation to NAMI.
  • Participants must complete the 5K Run/Walk between October 26- November 1, 2020 in the convenience of their home or community. 
  • Everyone at Patterson is invited to participate with their families and share their photos of their run or walk with Take FIVE (email event photos to TakeFIVE@pattersoncompanies.com). Look for these photos in Patterson communication in November!

Do Some Good While Moving!

Mental health awareness is so important, especially during a pandemic, and Patterson wants to support those in our community that are working hard to bring awareness to mental health issues and the many forms they can assume. A portion of the registration fees from the We Are Patterson 5K Run/Walk race will go directly to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in order to support our families and communities that are experiencing mental stress and challenges during this time.

The Patterson Foundation will be supporting this event through its Dollars for Doers program with a $500 donation to NAMI on top of all race registration donations!
