Grab your running shoes the 33rd Annual Windsor Heights Annual Mini-Marathon (WHAMM)is back and better then ever! New route, new folks and new ideas! This year the very successful WHAMM will start and end at Colby Park. The 5K gets underway at 8AM on May 16th and our member organization the Walnut Creek YMCA is in charge of the event. Participants receive a WHAMM t-shirt, race food and water and (this is very cool!) a ticket to the Windsor Heights Fire Department Pancake Breakfast that this year is also taking place at Colby Park!
Proceeds from WHAMM will go to benefit Girls on the Run of Polk County. Girls on the Run is a physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd – 8th grade. The program teaches life skills thorough interactive lessons and running games. The goal of the program is to assist girls in giving them confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime of appreciation of health and fitness. Our local Girls on the Run is an affiliate of Girls on the Run International which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.
Registration is only $25 through May 8th or $35 fee between May 9th and the 16th. Register on Facebook just look for Girls on the Run Polk County or simply Google WHAMM!
