The Live Locally Race sponsors are excited to announce that this year’s fifth annual 5K Run/Walk event will again sponsor Polson’s own 2012 Olympic hopeful Melinda Owen. Melinda is a top U.S. competitor in the Pole Vault and has placed in the top 4 in indoor and outdoor competitions this year. Her mental attitude, training schedule, commitment, physical abilities and motivation are already those of an Olympian. Our goal is to financially support and encourage Melinda so she can focus on her training.
• Melinda will be joining us at the Race!!!
• As is tradition, many local businesses will donate prizes for post-race drawings. Country Pasta will provide a free spaghetti lunch for all participants. And for a special treat, Tipu’s Chai will be serving delicious Authentic Indian Chai to keep supporters warm and invigorate runners!! Stick around after the race to encourage your friends, family and coworkers – you won’t go home empty-handed!
• Fun Gear!! We will have cool “Owen 2012” stuff to buy, with proceeds donated to Melinda’s Quest.
• An on-site respiratory therapist will be available to answer any questions and provide educational resources.
Registration forms can be found here, or in local businesses around Polson. Bring your family, friends, neighbors, acquaintances and even… strangers. Help us support Melinda and make this year’s event a smashing success!!
