Par­tic­i­pants en­joy run event

Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

April 29 was a per­fect day for a run in the park, with over 80 in­di­vid­u­als par­tic­i­pat­ing in the 2017 Pr­pick BO$$ Mother Earth Run/walk.

Par­tic­i­pants were in­vited to run or walk along a one, two, five or 10 kilo­me­tre course along the Chi­nook Path­way from a start­ing point at Elm­wood Park. Par­tial pro­ceeds of the race were do­nated in sup­port of com­mu­nity pro­gram­ming at South­west Homes.

“We’re re­ally try­ing to pro­mote peo­ple to come to South­west Saskatchewan to run,” ex­plained race or­ga­nizer Stephanie Pr­pick-boss.

She was en­cour­aged to see 83 par­tic­i­pants, and with 25 vol­un­teers there were over 100 peo­ple in­volved in the race event.

“We are hop­ing our num­bers are go­ing to con­tinue to dou­ble. Last year we had 47, so we al­most kind of dou­bled this year. The more peo­ple come out…we can put on more events.”
