Centura Health, Healthy Learning Paths Spread Power of Health

Centura Health and Healthy Learning Paths invite you to step into the power of health at the 8th annual Frank Shorter RACE4Kids' Health 5K and Expo:  Where Science, Engineering & Health Collide4Kids. Olympic Gold Medalist Frank Shorter is on our team with a bold mission:  to spread the power of health for children. Longmont United Hospital, St. Anthony Hospital, and St. Anthony North Health Campus want everyone, runners, walkers, crawlers, and rollers to rally for the health of kids!

Show your healthy powers while making your 5K qualifying time for the BolderBoulder!  Or if you want to take a leisurely stroll, try Mazzola's Miracle Fun Run that is just shy of a mile.  Kids love the Applebee's Buzz for ages 3-5 years and Diaper Dash for ages 2 and under with an adult.    

To show your healthy powers, 5k kids 10 and under will receive cool capes while supplies last!  Back by popular demand are our high quality long sleeve tech shirts.  We may have capes for adults who want to strut their healthy powers too! Come dressed in your favorite costume for a chance to win a prize!

To keep the earth healthy, the 1STBANK Center staff will be collecting small recyclable electronics for FREE at this event.  So take advantage of this healthy opportunity to recycle your electronics free. 

Proceeds benefit Healthy Learning Paths, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded with a rebellious spirit and bold mission:  to spread the power of health for children while leading the way to health conscious communities.  Check out our Healthy Learning Kids program here.
