11/2/2009 ~ Live Locally 2009
Encouraging people to live healthy lifestyles, including eating well and regular exercise, is one of Country Pasta’s goals. October celebrated National Pasta Month and National Healthy Lung Month (American Lung Association). In honor of these events, Country Pasta once again partnered with our local Health Care Plus organization to host the 3rd annual Live Locally 5k Run/Walk on October 24th. Each year this event donates all proceeds to Mission Valley Aquatics, helping to design and construct an indoor swimming facility for Lake County Montana.
This year we had a fantastic turn out, with over 150 participants! Winners in each category received handmade miniature tipis (pictured below). Entrants were also eligible for post-race prizes donated by local businesses. Donations included everything from free coffee and movie tickets to 18 holes of carted golf! The participant who came the farthest to compete in our race traveled a whopping 1281 miles from Los Angeles, California!
If you’re in the area next October, come join us for the race. We’ll begin preparing next summer for another fantastic event! Thank you Polson for your support!!
