The 2015 Double Creek Event was a great success!

We welcomed almost 800 participants on June 20 to cycle, ride, and walk to benefit the Healthy Community Pharmacy. An event of this size would not be possible without the generous support of our corporate donors. Please see the list of generous companies that supported this event in so many ways and patronize these businesses and thank them for their generous gifts!

Congratulations to every person who participated in this event this year. The timed results for the half marathon and 5K are listed here. Finish line photos will be available in July and posted here. Thanks again for your participation!

About the Double Creek Event: The Double Creek was established to provide support to programs that benefit underinsured kids and the families who provide care for them. All money raised will benefit the Healthy Community Pharmacy. The Pharmacy serves uninsured or underinsured patients from all over our community. It provides medications to eligible patients at cost plus a small dispensing fee.

In many cases, uninsured or underinsured patients may have access to a doctor and a diagnosis, but may not have the financial ability to pay for prescribed medications. Without these medications to complete treatments, simple illnesses become more acute and chronic. More severe illnesses result in longer recoveries, additional treatments, and even hospitalizations.

      30, 48 or 62 Mile Bike Tour

      Bicycle riders will enjoy the scenic and lightly traveled roads of York and Adams counties. You will enjoy green stretches of farmland, rustic bridges, and country churches while riding along the Conewago and Bermudian creeks for which the ride was named.

      The route for this event will be punctuated by three rest stops. Healthy refreshments will be available at all of these stops, and a celebratory brunch will mark the end of the tour.

      Since it’s beginning, the event has experienced remarkable growth, thanks in large part to the generosity of the community and participants like yourself.

      For more detailed information about the Double Creek Tour, please contact Lisa Oriolo at 717-851-2149.

      5K or Half Marathon Run

      The Double Creek Run takes up the legacy of an important event that was carried on at the Hospital Fete for more than 25 years. Many steps have been taken to ensure that it has kept as much of its identity and individuality as possible.

      The route for this event will be punctuated by frequent water/sport drink/gel stands. A celebratory brunch will mark the end of the run. Men's and Women's Awards will be given to top finishers in 13 age groupings.

      To keep everyone safe on all running routes, we ask that you do not bring animals to the event.

      Participants in the Endurance Challenge will participate in the half marathon, followed by the 30 mile bike ride.  The fee for the Endurance Challenge covers both events.
