CONWAY — Join White Mountain Community Health Center's staff and board members for its Whitaker Wander 5K Fundraiser on Saturday, May 18, beginning at 9:30 a.m. at Whitaker Woods in North Conway.

Check-in will start at 8 a.m. There will also be a 9 a.m. 1-mile kids run.

Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are encouraged to participate. The health center suggests those who are new and unsure of where to start with training use the Couch to 5k (C25K) app which is free and easy to use. This app provides all of the workouts and description for each day and week. Users can see their progress, the total distance they’ve run, and how many workouts are still to go.

Entry fees are $25 for adults and $5 for the kid’s 1-mile race for children under 10. The entry fee for adults will go up to $30 on May 11 at 12 p.m.
