United Way 3rd Annual Race Around Lake Ripley
Local News | May 14, 2013
The United Way of West Central Minnesota is promoting the 3rd annual race around Lake Ripley on Saturday morning. The event is being coordinated locally by the Empower group.
Julie Dengerud from Mighty Dragons pre-school is part of the group and she says there are actually 2 races – a run/walk around the whole lake at 9 a.m., and a kids fun run at 8:30.
Dengerud says registration is $30 for adults and $10 for kids by this Thursday, or $35 for adults and $15 for children on Saturday. She says there will also be a bounce house, games and face painting.
Renee Nolting from the United Way says runners will get a t-shirt, a goody bag, and a continental breakfast. She says the event is a fundraiser that will help the Empower group do more good things for children in the community.
Nolting says people can learn more about this Saturday’s race at Lake Ripley by going to www.liveunitedwcm.org. She says donations to the United Way can be made by going to the same website, www.liveunitedwcm.org.
