First Annual Milk Fund Run to be held


By Mitchell Walbridge

Posted in All Health & Wellness

A unique event, the Milk Fund Run, will be held for the first time in Fillmore County on June 8 beginning at the Root River State Trailhead in Fountain, Minn. Registration begins at 8am in Fountain’s City Park. The Milk Fund Run will begin at approximately 9am after the completion of the registration process.

The event is a 2.5 mile run (or walk) that is being held to help fund the Fillmore Central School’s Milk Fund. At registration there is a suggested donation of $15 per individual or $40 per family. The course runs downhill on the scenic bike trail and will conclude at the Trail Side Holsteins Dairy Farm.

After the race refreshments, dairy snacks, and tours of a modern dairy farm will be given. Participants and the public will have the opportunity to learn how today’s dairy farms operate and learn about where their dairy products originate.

Tours run from 9:30am to 11:30am. As a convenience runners will also be provided a shuttle back to Fountain. In addition, at 10am there will be an awards ceremony for top male and top female runners.

One hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit the Fillmore Central School’s Milk Fund, helping to provide school age children with the calcium and protein they need to build strong bones, provide adequate growth, and maintain a healthy bone density.

At a recent Fountain Trail Days Committee meeting, Johnson, one of the event’s coordinators, stated, “I have been getting good responses for participation for this new fundraiser.” Many people are excited for this new event that will benefit the local youth. Several Fillmore County businesses have donated to the event as well.

The event takes place on June 8, the same day Fountain Trail Days also kicks off. For more information on the Milk Fund Run, contact Michael Johnson at trailsideholsteins@gmail.com, 507-421-3967, or visit the event’s Facebook page.
