The Taylorville Memorial Hospital Auxiliary are getting ready for their 9th Annual TMH Auxiliary 5k Fun Run and Walk this Saturday at Taylorville Memorial Hospital. The event will include activities for the children and parents alike, and is designed to help improve awareness for heart health, and as a way for citizens to support the hospital.
Debbie Johnson and Ashley Basso with the Taylorville Memorial Hospital Auxiliary appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show to promote the 5k. Basso had information on the event, and says people can register early for the event by filling out a form at the TMH gift shop.
Johnson had some history on how the event got started, saying the rehabilitative services department started the 5k, and the Auxiliary has since taken over running the event.
Registration opens on Saturday, May 6th at 8:30, with the 5k scheduled to begin at 9, and the children's dash portion of the event scheduled at 10. Registration costs $20 before the event, with a $25 registration fee for registering the day of, and Memorial Health System employees can register for a reduced price of $15.
