With a focus on community health and wellness, McKenzie Health System is proud to host its annual fun run, the Change 4 Life 5K, on October 5 at Woodland Hills Golf Course, 320 N. Gates Road in Sandusky. Individuals and families can walk, run and stroll – fun costumes are welcome – to show support for having a healthier community and raise funds to go toward the purchase of the 3D mammography machine.
The 5K starts with an optional warm up with Christine Tanton, owner of Body Metrix by Christine, and winds throughout the golf course assuring plenty of relaxing nature to see along the way. Stations will be strategically placed providing different colors of chalk flying and a glitter finish line at the end. Again this year will be the optional HIIT (high intensity internal training) stations where trainers will lead bonus exercises such as squats, jumping jacks or knee raises. HIIT stations will be led by Taylor Hutchinson, Christine Tanton, and Erin Freiburger. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. and the race begins at 9:30 a.m.
“This is a great and healthy event for every age,” said Suzette Walker, Change 4 Life Group Founder and Nurse Practitioner at McKenzie Health and Wellness Center in Sandusky. “Once again, we are proud to promote health and wellness and are happy to be raising funds this year to help in the fight against breast cancer. Grab your sunglasses and please join us for another unforgettable 5K in October!”
Registration for adults is $25, youth (ages 6-18) is $10, and children (5 and under) are free. All race participants who sign up by September 24 will receive a free event t-shirt. Online registration is available at www.mckenziehealth.org/5k and questions can be directed to 810-648-6117.
