Milk Fun[D] Run to be held June 8th


Fri, May 10th, 2013
Posted in All Health & Wellness

The first ever Milk Fun[D] Run to benefit the Fillmore Central Milk Fund is going to be held on June 8, 2013. The run will begin at the Fountain, Minn. Root River Trail Head and finish at Trailside Holsteins dairy farm. This event is a fun run/walk open to all individuals and families regardless of age and/or skill level. Registration will be at the trail head from 8am to 8:45am with the run beginning at 9am. The course will take runners and walkers 2.5 miles downhill on the scenic Root River Trail concluding at Trailside Holsteins where refreshments and dairy snacks will be provided. An award ceremony will take place at 10am with awards given to the top male and female runners. A free shuttle back to the Fountain trail head will be available from 9:30am until noon.

100 percent of the proceeds from the Milk Fun[D] Run will be donated to the Milk Fund at Fillmore Central Schools. The Milk Fund was founded to assure that all students have the opportunity to enjoy wholesome milk during their morning milk break. This nutritional snack is vital to a young child’s development. Educational dairy displays will be set up on the farm and tours of the dairy farm will be available from 9:30 until 11:30.

To learn more about the Milk Fun[D] Run please visit our Facebook page, or contact Michael Johnson at 507-421-3967, or trailsideholsteins@gmail.com.

We hope everyone will come out on June 8 for a fun morning on the beautiful Root River Trail. Please join us for some exercise and tour a modern dairy farm, all in support of a great cause!
