The fun begins at 9 a.m. near the State Capitol with warm-up exercises by Capital City Health Club, music and youth activities. The run starts at 9:15 and follows a course to the St. Peter’s Medical Group building across the street (Broadway) from the Hospital. All runners who complete the race will receive a free back pack! A free “Back to School Health Fair” begins in and outside the Medical Group building immediately after the run and continues until 11 a.m. Participants up to the age of 14 are invited to run or walk (family members are welcome along, but only those 14 and under need to register.) Local college and high school athletes will run along with the participants.
Dr. Henriksen and her staff will be doing a vision screening and reminding you to have your child’s eyes checked before they head back to school!
