You’re invited to the annual PMC Whoop Up Fun Run on June 8, 2018. Registration will begin at 7:45 AM and the race starts at 8:00 AM. There is no entry fee to enter; however, all participants must sign a liability waiver to take part in the event.
“This event used to serve as a fundraiser for PMC Wellness. But, as the community leaders in healthcare, we just want to promote wellness and overall community health. Staying physically active and maintaining a balanced diet is so vital for disease control, stress management, mental health, weight management, and so many other endless benefits. PMC and the entire community have made great strides in promoting health and wellness. We are so proud to have the community partners we have all working towards a healthier and happier community. If we can eliminate one more barrier to physical activity- which in this case would be the participation fee- then we are all about that! We just want to see people out here doing their best, competitive or not, with friends and family and enjoying Conrad on our town’s biggest weekend. If anyone was interested in starting their nutrition or fitness journey, we have tons of resources and professionals available at PMC including membership to our fully equipped gym and of course a dedication to Community Health Needs Assessment initiatives. We’re on board for whatever it takes to sustain overall community wellness. Pondera Medical Center has a strong belief in educating the public about health concerns or ways to improve family health.” -PMC on hosting the Fun Run
All participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather. In summer months it is best to wear long sleeves, sun glasses, hats, and sunscreen to protect against the sun’s harmful UV rays. It is also important to drink plenty of water and take breaks throughout the day to prevent heat stress. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, but most skin cancers can be prevented.
We have a unique opportunity at PMC to be there for our community for all their health and wellness needs. We appreciate the community support and the support of all our community partners as we strive to bring you the “Best of Care, Close to Home.”
