Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital will host the third annual Run for Mercy 5K at 8 a.m., March 23. Proceeds from the race/walk support Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital Fund of Excellence. This fund supports the overall mission and strategic direction of the hospital as well as providing the funds needed to grow, deliver exceptional care, and introduce new services needed to better serve the community.

The Run for Mercy 5K will kickoff at the King and Queen Concourse, 4 Concourse Parkway. “Since our founding, Emory Saint Joseph’s has been focused on providing care to those less fortunate, which is the mission of our founders, the Sisters of Mercy,” says Heather Dexter, CEO of Emory Saint Joseph’s.

“We are so grateful for the many runners and walkers who support the Run for Mercy 5K each year, which in turn, allows us to expand our services in the community to those needing it most.”
