About the
Freedom Run

Every Fourth of July, Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice hosts the Freedom Run 5K in Evergreen.

The beloved community event starts at 8 am at Evergreen Middle School with a 5K run (or walk if you prefer!) that follows a scenic and hilly course  through residential neighborhoods and ends with a festive after party near the finish line at the Evergreen Athletic Club.

All proceeds benefit Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice. For more than 40 years, Mount Evans has been an essential resource to our foothill and mountain communities, providing experienced and compassionate home health and hospice care.
