Heath 5K Run/Walk April 3 raises money for city trails

By J.J. Smith. The annual Heart of Heath 5K Run/Walk is scheduled April 3 at 8:30 am at the Heath City Hall, 200 Laurence Dr.

Raising funds for a City trail system to connect public areas, parks and neighborhoods, the family-friendly event is open to all ages and athletic abilities.

Last year the event attracted over 300 participants, including three generations of the Calvin and Kim Wallen family (pictured above), according to Assistant City Manager Kim Dobbs.

She said drawings will be held after the race for prizes donated by local businesses, plus a high-quality Dri-Fit T-shirt bearing the Heart of Heath logo will be given to every participant while supplies last.

Register at the event beginning at 7:30 am.
