A few sprinkles on Saturday
morning didn't hinder those who came out for the third annual Moving
Forward 5K Run/Walk. It was still a beautiful fall morning to get
some exercise, with pleasant temperatures in the 60s and no wind.
The activity, hosted by Abraham Lincoln Healthcare Foundation and
Memorial SportsCare at ALMH, took place in beautiful Edward Madigan
State Park a few miles south of Lincoln and drew a little over 170
Before the primary event, there was a dash for kids 10 and under.
All finishers of the chip-timed 5K were given medals, and prizes
were awarded in male and female groups: overall, 60 and over, 11 and
under, and stroller.
Marty Ahrends, executive director of the Abraham Lincoln
Healthcare Foundation, and Todd Mourning, D.P.T., physical therapist
and manager of rehab services, welcomed participants, saying: "Our
mission is to improve the health of the people and communities we
serve, and what better way than through exercise."
