Union Hospital races to fight childhood hunger


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Union Hospital hosted an event to give back to the Vigo County School Corporation, Sunday.

Hospital organizers held their inaugural 5K to fight childhood hunger, at ISU’s memorial stadium.

Proceeds collected form the race will go to the corporation’s backpack program. Another portion will also benefit Union Hospital’s employee relief program.

News 10 spoke with Union Hospital CEO Steve Holman after he completed the race. He called the hospital’s effort to help feed more hungry children, amazing.

“I’ve talked with Dan the superintendent of the schools, and he tells me this is just an awesome program that helps so many kids out that wouldn’t be able to get a sack,” Holman said.

First place in the 5K went to Drew Gambill, who crossed the finish line in 16 minutes and 42 seconds.
