In 2015 we launched the inaugural Health Missions Run for Prevention 5k, right here in Springfield. As a result we saw more than 50 runners take part in the AlignLife of Springfield event in Washington Park. Last year the number of participants almost doubled and we raised thousands of dollars for Health Missions.
This year the run will take place on Saturday, September 30th and registration is now open at http://www.active.com/springfield-il/running/dista...=. Health Missions is a non-profit established in 2004 to improve exposure of natural healthcare to underprivileged communities, domestically and around the world. The charity also works to educate the public about natural health opportunities, such as chiropractic care and lifestyle choices to enhance their health and vitality.
We not only want to raise money for Health Missions, but also involve the community. From young to old and seasoned runners to novices, participants can walk, jog or run the course. Now is the time to begin training for our 5k, while it’s not too hot, and with plenty of time to get in shape.
The third annual Run for Prevention will start at 9am. There are only 250 places available so make sure you register soon. All participants will receive a free t-shirt and medal. Registration is $25 per person before August 30th and $30 per person after. There is plenty of parking, which is free.
