The beautiful Watonwan River valley is the site of the Madelia Community Hospital Foundation Run Walk 5K. This event, sponsored by the Madelia Community Hospital Foundation and Anderson Race Management, benefits the Madelia Community Hospital & Clinic. Funds raised help the Hospital and Clinic purchase medical equipment and patient amenities, allow staff to attend training and educational seminars, and underwrite scholarships for students pursuing health care careers. The Foundation gives over $50,000 annually in financial support to the Hospital & Clinic.
Race medals will also be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place (by age group), to the team with the most participants, and to the fastest team. T-shirts will be given to entrants that sign up for the race by June 1st.
This is a great small town race with lots of charm. The Foundation Run/Walk is part of the Madelia Park Days celebration, so everyone is invited - runners, walkers, families with strollers, and spectators. Let’s have some fun and raise money to save lives!
