Bell Fun Run
In an effort to help the children in our area become healthier St. Mary’s Hospital has joined the Children’s Healthcare Improvement Collaborative; CHIC. CHIC is a collaborative effort to improve health outcomes and satisfaction among children and families.
As part of this collaboration SMH would like to invite children of all ages and their families to participate in monthly challenges; this month’s challenge is to participate in the annual ‘Jingle Bell Fun Run/Walk which will be held in Nezperce.
This event will take place on December 6th; registration is from 1:30 to 2:00pm at the Event Pavilion at the Lion’s Club Park. Entry fee is 2 canned or boxed food items. For more information about the run, call Marci Stapleton at (208) 717-7236 or (208) 937-2348. SMH will provide healthy snacks after the run for all participants.
One of St. Mary’s Hospital’s goals with the CHIC project is to help children learn that exercise can be fun and to introduce them to healthy foods which also taste good.
