I am excited to announce a new activity that will be held in conjunction with the Wise County Health Fair.
Lace up your running and walking shoes to join us at the inaugural Family Fun Run/Walk scheduled for Saturday, April 9, at the Decatur Civic Center. This event promises to be healthy fun for Wise County families.
Family Fun Run/Walk organizers are making strides to ensure a heart pounding event for all – from youth to grandparents. Runners and walkers will begin with registration at 9:45 am on the grassy area in front of the Civic Center, followed by the start of the Run/Walk at 10:30 a.m. Participants are invited to run, jog, walk or trot along the approximately 1-mile course which will be marked around the perimeter of the Civic Center property. The event is free, with the first 100 registered participants receiving a T-shirt.
All participants who complete the course will be eligible for door prizes provided by Wise County businesses. Prizes include local gym memberships, children’s bicycles, sports equipment, camping supplies, games and more.
The Fun Run/Walk event is an opportunity for children and adults to experience the fun of healthy living as a family. Don’t forget to make plans to also visit the Health Fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for school immunizations and health screenings.
