Race Preview: 2017 Healing Hearts 5K (Oregon City)

Angels in the Outfield and Social Services of Clackamas County are two non-profit organizations that have joined together to put on Healing Hearts 5K in Oregon City. Both non-profits share a similar focus and want to help children in need with this 5K run and walk.

Angels in the Outfield is a non profit organization seeking to brighten the lives of children who have been impacted by crime or domestic violence. [Their] mission is to promote healing, happiness, and safety of children through the generosity of [their] contributors. The services provided to each child will be determined on a case-by-case basis dependent upon each child’s specific needs.


Social Services of Clackamas County is dedicated to helping people in need and to support the work of volunteers in Clackamas County. Seniors, persons with disabilities, families and individuals with low incomes are provided with necessary goods and services when other resources are not available. Volunteers provide critical rides for seniors, persons with disabilities and survivors of domestic violence to safely get to appointments and access necessary support services.

Healing Hearts 5K starts at the Clackamas County Public Services Building and goes through Hillendale Park. Register early to make sure you get a t-shirt. Participants will receive a finisher’s medal. Teams of 4 can save on registration, so gather your friends and join other runners and walkers in helping needy children in Clackamas County.
