Run St. James Challenge Open to the Public« Return
“Exercise is medicine” is not simply a saying, but actually backed by scientific research.
St. James Parish Hospital is once again partnering to sponsor the Run St. James Challenge which challenges our entire community to get moving. Whether you can run or walk, accepting the challenge not only supports other community organizations but can also add years to your life.
For the last six years, the hospital has partnered with Chad Weidert and his wife Susan, founders of River Parish Running, to sponsor the Run St. James Challenge in an effort to encourage community kids to get up and get active. This year, we are expanding the initiative to award anyone who meets the challenge. St. James Parish Hospital is proud to help join people together through a focus on fitness. To learn more about the runners club or find out about local practice runs, “like” River Parish Runners on Facebook.
Community members who meet the challenge—completing at least three of four races—are invited to an elite award presentation in the hospital lobby on Wednesday, December 18th at 5:30pm. Family members are invited to attend. Light refreshments will be served.
