Healthy Woman Wreath Run

Released by Longview Regional Medical Center

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) – Whether you are an avid runner or a casual walker, the 2nd Annual Healthy Woman Wreath Run is something for everyone. Taking place on the Paul Boorman Trail on Saturday, December 1st, at 8:00 a.m., the event celebrates health and fitness, and encourages people to get and stay fit. "We are so excited to host a family-oriented, healthy activity to promote wellness and healthy habits during the holidays while also raising money for such a worthy cause," says Libby Bryson, Marketing Director for Longview Regional Medical Center.

This year's beneficiary is the Children's Advocacy Center of Gregg and Harrison Counties (CACGHC), a non-profit organization whose mission is to lessen the emotional trauma to children who have been victims of sexual or physical abuse or witnesses to a violent crime. The CACGHC provides forensic interviews of the children in a child-friendly place to assist law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of their cases. In addition, the CACGHC coordinates the efforts of law enforcement, child protective services, prosecutors, counselors and therapists to provide healing and recovery to young victims and their families. The 2nd Annual Healthy Woman Wreath Run has received support from many local corporations and individuals in our community.

Same Day Registration and Check-In will take place at Parke Way Fitness Center at 7:00 a.m. with the actual 5K fun run kicking off at 8:00 a.m. on the Paul Boorman Trail. Participants will be timed by the Longview Run Club and awards will be given in each age category. All participants will receive a goodie bag, post-race drinks and snacks. Packet pick-up for participants will take place at Parke Way Fitness Center on Thursday, November 29th or Friday, November 30th from 7:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.
