Race Preview: 2018 Healing Hearts 5K Run & Walk (Oregon City)

Clackamas County Social Services and non-profit Angels in the Outfield are proud to be teaming up and directing their annual Healing Hearts 5K Run and Walk on Sunday, September 23rd.

Angels in the Outfield was started in 2009 by Shannon Kmetic a former Deputy DA of Clackamas County after “…successfully prosecuting the worst sexual abuse case of her career”. ( While the outcome of the case was positive, Kmetic realized that more had to be done to help the victims of abuse cases heal and thrive after the legal system does its part, that the support doesn’t end in the courtroom. Hence, Angels in the Outfield was launched and has been successful in its mission to grant services and experiences to those directly affected by the trauma of abuse.

In 2017, $224,000 in funds were granted by Angels in the Outfield. As a non-profit, fundraising is essential for the survival of the programs good works. The Healing Hearts 5K Run and Walk is a big part of the success in bringing the community together to support a worthy cause through fun and education. Together, with Clackamas County Social Services, who provides help to seniors and people with disabilities in the community and resources and services to keep people healthy and safe, are hosting the Healing Hearts 5K Run and Walk as a way to raise funds for both programs.
