Good Samaritan Foundation Board Introduces Pumpkin Pride Run

You can carve them, paint them and dress them up, but have you ever tried running with one? Now you can! The first Pumpkin Pride walk/run is on Saturday, October 24, beginning at 9:00 a.m.

Good Samaritan’s Foundation is hosting this brand new event at Ouabache Trails Park, and registration starts at 8:00 a.m. This obstacle course and walk/run brings live music, games and fun for the whole family!

Adult obstacles include the ghost tunnel, Franken-tire walk, hay bale hurdles, pumpkin roll, zombie calisthenics, and the spider crawl. Kids can also go through the ghost tunnel, spider crawl, pumpkin roll, and go crazy for bubble madness.

Prizes will be awarded to the winners of Most Competitive Male and Female, Best Costume and more. The obstacle course length is 2.86 miles for adults and .25 miles for kids.

Save five dollars when you register before October 3rd. Adult early registration is $35 and for the kids, $10. The first 25 adults to register will receive a dri-fit shirt. Team registration is also welcome.

To register, go online to and for more information, contact Nicole Coomer at 812-885-3192, or by email at

All proceeds will go towards Caring Connection, a benevolent patient care fund, initiated by Good Samaritan medical practitioners and employees who noticed that patients were struggling to cover the cost of prescriptions, assist devices and other smaller dollar health essentials.

Donations are greatly appreciated and can be mailed to Good Samaritan Foundation at 520 S. 7th Street, Vincennes, IN. You could be a platinum ($351+ donation), gold ($250-$350 donation), silver ($100-$249 donation), bronze ($50-$99 donation), or booster ($5-$49 donation)­­­ for this great event.
