The lightning had stopped by 3am when the course was being set. The rain soon ended as well, to give us the time we needed to complete this 5k which is a fundraising event that also helps families enjoy a morning of fitness and fun! On Saturday, September 28th, 2019, Franciscan Health Fitness Centers Schererville held its eighth annual Anyone Can Do A 5k walk/run. With a damp start time of 8am, was a great way to begin the Saturday. Unfortunately, from what we heard that morning, not all were so lucky to be able to attend, as some were bailing out water in their basements.
The route is very swift through the winding and Plum Creek Subdivision, a beautiful neighborhood conveniently located across US 41 from the Club. We encourage participants to join in this run/walk whether it is your 1st or 50th 5k! Many of our Trainers, Group Fitness Instructors and staff are on the course to help motivate all participants. We line the course not only with arrow signs, so participants can find their way through the subdivision, but we also add motivational signage to help inspire those participating.
Awards included 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in each age division, the overall female and male winner, and the master winners—the first female and male winner over the age of 40. In addition to awards, the event also offers a vast number of door prizes for participants.
