The Southern 7 Health Department will hold its seventh "Tour de Seven" -- Fall into Fitness 5K Run/Walk in Rosiclare on Oct. 1, as part of the town's annual Fluorspar Festival. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to a local food pantry in Hardin County.
"Southern 7's Healthy Lifestyles Committee, that plans and hosts this event, is all about promoting a healthy lifestyle, of course the Tour de Seven serves that purpose," said Natalie Sawyer, S7HD health education director. "We also want to be present in our communities as much as possible and have some fun."
A portion of the proceeds from the 5K will be donated to Hardin County Food Pantry. Joining in the event again this year is Arrowleaf, a local nonprofit community service agency, to provide participant support and be on hand with information about their services.
Early registration for the Tour de Seven ends Sept. 15. Entry fee is $25 and includes a participant T-shirt. Late registration is $30 with no guarantee on T-shirt. Day of registration begins at 7 a.m. followed by the race at 8 a.m.
For those wanting a shorter route, a one-mile "Fluorspar Mineral Mile" will start at 8:30 a.m. Enter by donating a nonperishable food item. T-shirts can be ordered for $10 with a "Fluorspar Mineral Mile" registration.
