For More Than A Century, St. Barnabas Health System Has Had One Simple Mission: To Help Retirees Live Comfortably At A Price They Can Afford. Help us set the pace in a race to provide free care. For a quarter-century, trekking Meridian Road has been as much a part of western Pennsylvanian summers as watching fireworks. The tradition will continue August 3rd with the 28th annual St. Barnabas Free Care 5K presented by Paracca Interiors Flooring America. Whether a fitness enthusiast seeking the challenge of the North Hills’ top-rated course or merely a fan of a great summer party, participation is a guaranteed treat for you and others. Proceeds benefit the St. Barnabas Free Care Fund, which affords $7 million in care to patients and residents every year. Our event is open to competitive and amateur runners, joggers, walkers, teams, stroller pushers and wheelchair racers of all ages. Prizes are awarded to top finishers and specialty bags are received by the first 1,000 registrants. Over 1,000 participants and 100 volunteers helped make the 2018 St. Barnabas Free Care 5K the best race yet. But we know we can do better with your help.
