The Barnesville Hospital Employee Wellness Program recently coordinated its fifth annual 5K Training Club during the months of August and September 2015. Participants had the opportunity to train over an eight week period by running and/or walking with others that were interested in seeing if they could get strong enough and conditioned enough to finish a 5K. There were weekly organized group runs/walks during the two months and there was an eight week training schedule for everyone to follow as a group or on their own.
On September 26, 2015 the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival held its annual 5K race which was the goal of our 2015 5K Training Club. The 5K Club had a total of 38 participants running or walking this event. Congratulations to all the participants for completing the race! Dr. Michael Baum, M.D. and Tracey Childress, FNP, along with the Barnesville Hospital Employee Wellness Program, sponsored t-shirts for each of the participants in the club.
The 2015 5K Training Club was open to all employees of Barnesville Hospital and their friends and family members. This was a great way to get in shape, learn some tips on running or walking races, and have fun with your fellow employees.
