This is the 6th annual Summer’s End Fun Run. Proceeds help support healthy community activities and nutrition/health education curriculum to schools that serve to educate as well as provide incentives to live a healthy lifestyle. We aim to link community, schools and government to offer resources, opportunities and education to help keep our community healthy, active, and encourage children and families to Eat Smart Play Hard, and Learn together. The 5210 message, that encourages energy balance, stands for:
- 5 servings of fruits & vegetables every day
- 2 or less hours of recreational screen time every day
- 1 hour or more of physical activity every day
- 0 drinks with added sugar every day
Come enjoy a Fun Run with good music, fun booths, and professionally timed.
We aren’t about the hype, colors, middle of the night runs, or rootbeer gardens (although those aren’t bad either).
We are about family- Stroller, wheelchair & community friendly.
We are fun & We are local; and we’d like to share an interesting piece of produce with you after you walk or run.
