The Syringa Hospital Foundation Border Days Fun Run (“Firecracker” fun run) is set for Tuesday, July 4.

According to JoAnne Smith, executive director of the Syringa Hospital Foundation, there will be a new location and route for the fun run this year.

“After speaking with the police chief, we want to make some changes to make the minimal amount of road closures and maximize the use of the law enforcement staff who assist us,” she said. “The new path will make the event much more safe for the runners.”

Registration will be in the Umpqua Bank parking lot starting at 6:30 a.m. The race starts at 7:45 a.m. Stay tuned for details on the new route!

Proceeds from the race will help fund community projects including the annual Holiday Senior Luncheon.
