About This Activity

This year’s event is all about promoting health in Mahaska County.  We’re partnering with the YMCA to give adults and children a fun and exciting day, all while promoting our healthy living initiatives.  Family day events will be held from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm, and include numerous free kid-friendly activities such as crafts, balloon animals, games, inflatables, community booths, face painting, raffle prizes, and more.  There will be drawings for lots of giveaways for kids throughout the day and at noon Blue Zones Project Oskaloosa will be doing a cooking demo!

This year we have added a Fun Run Obsticle Course! At 9:30 am, people of all ages can choose a route and follow their designated path where they will encounter “checkpoints”. These checkpoints will have tasks for the participants to complete so they can continue on their path. These tasks will be suitable for people of all abilities and are all optional. Things such as crab walking, hula hooping or jumping jacks are all things participants could come across on their run. All of the routes start and end at the PAC but are different from one another. 

As always, the United Way is truly grateful for the support from our local business leaders, their employees and families.
