More than 1,200 community members took part in the virtual Rip City Race for the Roses, presented by UnitedHealthcare, from April 25 through June 30, to raise funds for Albertina Kerr’s life-saving children’s mental health services and programs for individuals experiencing intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.
“As a company dedicated to helping people live healthier lives, UnitedHealthcare believes in supporting community-based organizations that make a difference to those in need. It’s an important part of who we are as a company and as a corporate citizen. We applaud Albertina Kerr for the support and compassion it provides to those living with mental health, intellectual and development challenges,” says Gary Daniels, CEO, UnitedHealthcare, Pacific Northwest.
In partnership with the Portland Trail Blazers, the race has been a great occasion to support a great cause. Participants could run, walk, or roll anywhere, anytime during the official race dates a half-marathon, 10k, 5k, or Nike Made to Play kids 1k. All entrants received a swag bag full of goodies, including a rose-inspired finisher medal and race t-shirt.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Albertina Kerr for the annual Rip City Race for the Roses. This event is a perfect partnership—we want to encourage our Rip City community to stay active and get outside, and the Rip City Race for the Roses is an amazing opportunity to do so, and it’s all for a great cause,” says Brooke Olzendam, Trail Blazers Courtside Reporter.
