Pines was proud to sponsor the Kansas Half Marathon & 5k event in its 12th year in Lawrence, Kansas, which is a city near the farm where Pines and our predecessor company have grown wheatgrass and other green super foods starting in 1932.
Skyler, our Operations Manager, and Kelli, our Events and Materials Manager, handed out bottles of Pines Wheat Grass to race participants.
Jason, our Packaging and Shipping Manager, and Antonio, our Milling and Tableting Specialist, ran the race wearing Pines t-shirts. They were not alone. Other friends of Pines wore t-shirts and also participated in the race.
Since its inception, the Kansas Half Marathon has partnered with safety-net organizations, like Heartland Community Health Center, to help offset costs and increase access to affordable health care services for those that seek care in Douglas County.
Heartland, the beneficiary of the race, is a non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center that provides high-quality and affordable health care for all in Lawrence-Douglas County regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.
Heartland provides care for more than 6,500 individuals in an integrated primary care model that addresses the needs of the whole person.
