Torrance State Hospital is holding its 2nd Annual Torrance Trot, a 5K race to benefit their Indigent Patient Fund. This fund provides small monthly stipends to Torrance State Hospital patients who, because of their mental illness, have no means of income to purchase personal items.
The Torrance Trot will be held on Torrance State Hospital grounds, Saturday, September 15, beginning at 9 am and is open to both runners and walkers. Children nine years of age and under are invited to participate in a free quarter-mile Fun Run beginning at 8:30 am. All Fun Run participants will receive an award, and there will be face painting and other activities after the race.
To register online, go to www.runsignup.com and search “Torrance Trot”. For those who register before August 31, registration is $15, and a t-shirt is guaranteed. Registration after August 31 is $20, and a t-shirt will not be guaranteed. Participants for the Fun Run must register, but there is no cost. For more information about the race or to obtain a mail-in registration form, please call Lenore Meketa, Volunteer Services Coordinator, at 724-459-4464.
