For the past seven years, the Payson City Employee Wellness Program has hosted a community event called the Pay It Forward 5K/1 Mile Challenge. This year the event will be held May 6 at Payson City Memorial Park. Payson City employees would like to invite all to this fun community, family-friendly event. Pre-registration cost is $1 by May 2; day of registration is $5.
This year there will be a new medal design available to the first 1,500 participants. At the event there will be mascots, food trucks, entertainment, prizes and, of course, participant medals.
Along with the May 6 event, there will be an Elementary School Challenge. The school with the most participants – staff, students and family – will win an award assembly. At the award assembly, the school will receive a plaque to display, playground balls for each classroom and a visit from Olympic athlete Tracey Katan, who will be the guest speaker this year.
Registration is available online and or in paper format. For more information, contact Sarah at 801-404-6476 or visit payitforward5k1milechallenge.blogspot.com, paysonutah.org or PayItForward5k1mile on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
