Coleman 5K supports Family Center

 

Employees at the Coleman facility decided that a walking club would be a good idea and would help improve wellness. Looking for assistance, this newly formed club turned to the Coleman Family Center to help with organization while grabbing some exercise tips.

 

Following that encounter, a pair of employees realized that the Family Center itself could use a boost for its summer youth programs and the idea to host a 5K race was born.

 

Employees from the plant worked with the Coleman Family Center to plan the event, collect registration fees and ultimately run the race. All proceeds from the event were donated to the Family Center to pay for scholarships to their summer youth programs.

 

"It was a great event that ended up drawing in the whole community and we are very excited to host another race next year," Valarie Johnston, Coleman HR Manger said.

 

The course took runners around the town, through a car show taking place on the same day, into residential streets and past the high school where Huhtamaki volunteers were waiting with water at the midway point. The event attracted 66 runners and raised $1,300 for the Coleman Family Center.
