The third annual ‘B.C. Spring into Action’ community wellness event including a 5K, 10K, 1 mile run and a 5K walk will be held at Lakeview Community School District facilities in Battle Creek, MI on Saturday, April 26, 2014. All finishers in the paid events (5K and 10K runs) will receive a finisher's medallion and a great gender specific tech t-shirt. Come and set a new PR on a very, flat, fast, well monitored course.
Thank you for coming out today. We appreciate you supporting an active lifestyle. Results are posted here. We look forward to seeing you next year.
Other activities include the completion of the Area Wide Kid's Marathon. Those community kids that have registered for this activity will complete 25.2 miles prior to April 26th and then complete the 26th mile on race day with the other mile runners. Participants may track their 25.2 miles on a Kid's Marathon Pre-Registration Form. In addition, the YMCA will be holding their National Healthy Kid's Field Day activities from 9 a.m. – noon on site. So it will be a day where the whole community, young and old, can come and BE ACTIVE.
This event is being conducted by PEPA (Physical Education-Physical Activity) which is a sub committee of Coordinating School Health (CSH). This CSH project was initiated in order to improve overall health in the community. PEPA has decided to organize an event that will allow people to come together to be physically active. Proceeds from this event are used to support the goal of improving overall community health with a particular emphasis on eliminating childhood obesity.
