Inkeeping with their commitment to serve the community, Pinnacle Health and Fitness (formerly HRC Fitness) will be hosting the 6th Annual Charity 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, October 6th in Hillsborough. 
The primary beneficiary of the event is GiGi’s Playhouse Hillsborough which opened its doors in January 2015 to provide therapeutic programs for individuals with Down syndrome.

Financial support for the 2019 campaign has resulted in over $10,000 donated by our generous sponsors.
Pinnacle has also expanded its charitable efforts the past few years by including the ability for other organizations to raise money and awareness for their cause. These include the Joseph D Hernandez Foundation, the Bob Quinn Family, and the Christopher Koll Family.  More information about each organization can be found on the event Facebook page:
Following the 5K run and walk, GiGi’s Playhouse Hillsborough will co-host a Post-Race Party along with their 6th annual Dash for Down syndrome to raise awareness and acceptance for individuals with Down syndrome.  The Post-Race Party will include an award ceremony, prizes, food and beverages, games, and other entertainment for the whole family.
