Community heart health event welcomes over 500 participants
The inaugural Bellin Health Marinette 5K Run/Walk took place Saturday, April 30, welcoming over 500 total participants for a fun, community-friendly event. In addition to the 5K, the event featured a 1-mile walk and children’s run.
The event’s 5K champion on the men’s side was Mark Jasper of Menomonee, Mich., who covered the course in 17:36. Erin Schmitt of Sheboygan, Wis., took home the crown on the women’s side, crossing the line in 20:35.
As registration for this event filled two weeks prior to its start, the operations team made modifications in order to welcome additional participants in this heart-healthy activity on race day.
Bellin will continue to build on the success of this event for years to come. The date for next year’s Bellin Health Marinette 5K Heart Run/Walk is Saturday, April 29, 2023.
