The event will begin at Lakes Regional Healthcare’s east patio area, located south of their east entrance, at 9:00 am. There is no need to register for the event. It will kick off with an opening ceremony with LRH Director of Home Care and Hospice Julie Sather, LRH Hospice Chaplain Dr. Carl Klein, followed by Sarah Nygaard, the daughter of Kathy Nygaard, who was an LRH Hospice patient.
The walk/run itself will begin at approximately 9:30 from LRH’s east patio and proceed to the YMCA via Zenith Avenue, 28th Street, and Sunner Avenue, then head north along the trail on Highway 71, turning at the Immanuel Lutheran Church, then north on Zenith Avenue back to LRH. Individuals of all ages are welcome to participate. It is not a race or a competition, so walkers can take as long as is needed to finish, or walk as far as they are able. Upon returning to the east patio, there will be snacks and refreshments to enjoy. There will also be complimentary shirts distributed to the first 50 participants that come to the event.
Those with questions can call Jed Winkel at 712-336-8709.
