Tenth Annual Hy-5 Race to Benefit MetroHealth

The 2018 Hy-5 Race, Hyland’s annual 5K run and 1-mile walk, marks its 10th year of raising funds for The MetroHealth System. Since its inception in 2009, the event hosted by Hyland has raised more than $200,000 for MetroHealth.

The Hy-5 will take place on Saturday, May 19, 2018, at Hyland’s global headquarters at 28500 Clemens Road, Westlake. A chip-timed 5K run will begin at 9 a.m., followed by a family and dog-friendly 1-mile walk starting at 9:05 a.m.

Money raised from previous Hy-5 races have benefitted key programs and services at MetroHealth, including its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Arts in Medicine. A significant portion of the funds raised this year will benefit the MetroHealth Transformation.

MetroHealth President and CEO, Akram Boutros, MD, FACHE, will join Hyland President and CEO Bill Priemer, and Hyland Executive Vice President and Chief Product & Strategy Officer Brenda K. Kirk, in greeting participants before the event and distributing water at one of the route’s water stops. Kirk is also chair of The MetroHealth Foundation Board of Directors.

Hyland marked National High-5 Day, on Thursday, April 19, 2018, with a registration event at its Westlake campus. A second registration drive will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, April 30, 2018.
