Reminder: Mahaska Health Partnership Foundation "Run in the Sun" Aug. 3

Don’t forget to register for the Mahaska Health Partnership Foundation’s 3rd Annual “Run in the Sun,” on Saturday, Aug. 3 at the Lacey Sports Complex.

“Run in the Sun” is a 5K for runners and 1-mile Walk for all ages, abilities and even strollers. Race day registration begins at 7:30 am, and the race will start at 8:30 am.

Registration for either event is $25 per person. Each participant will receive a commemorative cotton T-shirt and all proceeds from the event will benefit the MHP Hospice Serenity House.

According to MHP Development Director Cathy Stahl, those wanting to participate are encouraged to click here. “Online registration will be open until July 31, but participants can still register the day of the race.” Stahl said. “Should we run out of your T-shirt size, it will be available to pick up or will be mailed to participants after the race.

“More than 200 families have benefited from the MHP Hospice Serenity House to date,” Stahl said. “Funds raised from ‘Run in the Sun’ will support this residential hospice house that provides comfort and solace for patients and their families by offering a home away from home for the patients last days.”
