The 36th annual Legacy Health Starlight Run is on May 31, 2014. Join an estimated 7,500 runners for a 5k (3.1-mile) run that travels the Portland Rose Festival’s Starlight Parade route. The event is open to runners of all ages and skill levels.

This year’s run benefits Legacy Rehabilitation Services, which provides a wide range of therapies to our child and adult patients. Our highly trained staff specializes in sports medicine/injury prevention, orthopedics, neurological, cancer, speech and burn rehabilitation. We offer this continuum of services in both outpatient clinics and hospital settings.
