Promoting Healthy Lifestyles at Home, School, and in the Workplace.


The Howard County Family Wellness Day and the Matzohball 5K are bringing our community together to make wellness a priority.  COVID will not stop us on Sunday, June 4th, 2023, from putting on our running shoes, stepping outside and being together for the 19th Annual Matzohball 5K!

Family Wellness Day is FREE to the public and an opportunity to share wellness resources, health education and healthy fun for evervyone.  However, there is a fee to register for the Matzohball 5k and 1 mile run/walk for those participating in those activities.  

100% of all donations made through the official Matzohball 5k web portal (sign-up registration) will go to the following three charities: Grass Roots, Dream Builders and Hope Works (over $50,000 donated to date).   You can join us at Centennial Park for the live event or you can participate virtually by walking or running your own personal 5K or 1 mile course anywhere.  Virtual participants can choose to run or walk any day or time, starting with the 9am official start on Sunday, June 19th right up through the following Sunday. 

If participating virtually, you can Track your time using a FitBit, Apple Watch, running app, or any way you want, and even upload your results to be posted on our site! You can also use the RaceJoy app to enhance your experience with real time tracking and cheers!  Once registered, you will be directed to the RaceJoy app and be given clear instructions.
