Venue Update Announced for Noble 5k race/walk

27th Annual Run For A Noble Cause & Walk For Good Health: April 30, 2011

WESTFIELD, MA– The Community Development Office at Noble Hospital announces a change of venue for the 27thAnnual Run For A Noble Cause & Walk For Good Health. While the 5K road race is still being held at Stanley Park, registrants will now gather at the Westfield Bank Children’s Pavilion at Stanley Park in Westfield, Mass. The venue change was necessary due to the recent closure of the Beveridge Pavilion.

Registration is continuing now through the day of the race—Saturday April 30, 2011. The registration fee is $30 April 16 to April 30—the day of the race/walk (Seniors 60 and up, $20). Children under the age of 12 are registered free of charge when accompanied by a paying parent or guardian. T-shirts will be available to registrants on a first-come, first-served basis while inventory is available.

Registration materials and general information may be downloaded via the hospital website at; click on the 5K logo. Or, to request information by mail, contact the Community Development Office by emailing, or call 413-568-2811, ext. 5520 or 5980.

Both the 5K road race and walk begin at 9:00 a.m., with registration from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. in the Children’s Pavilion. More than 700 participants are anticipated to run and walk.

The Run For A Noble Cause is a competitive road race great for all levels of runners from the novice to the serious runner. The 3.1 mile course is flat out and back through a residential area. A non-competitive walk for fun, The Walk For Good Health follows the same route as the road race.

Proceeds from the road race are directed to the Noble Hospital Annual Fund. It costs an enormous amount of money to provide the vast array of services available at Noble, around the clock, 365 days per year. In the best of times, community hospital net margins are quite low, and meeting our current operating needs, as well as other expenses, is a significant and persistent challenge. The road race is one of two major community fundraising events held by the hospital. The other is the Noble Ball, held in the fall.

This year’s race is made possible with generous sponsorship support from several area businesses and organizations:

Gold Sponsors
Dr. Andrew Chertoff, Orthopedic Surgeon
Jefferson Radiology
Dr. Peter E. Pascal, Orthopedic Surgeon

Silver Sponsors
Westfield Emergency Physicians, P.C.
Westfield Gas & Electric

Bronze Sponsor

United Bank
