The Mahaska Health Partnership Foundation will host the 2nd Annual “Run in the Sun,” on Saturday, July 28 at the Lacey Sports Complex.

According to MHP Development Director Cathy Stahl, those wanting to participate are encouraged to register online at www.mahaskahealth.org. “The registration deadline is July 9 to guarantee an event T-shirt,” Stahl said. “Participants will find this to be a well-run event and we’re able to provide results very quickly thanks to electronic chip timing.”
