Genesis Fall Foot Race Will Benefit Nursing Scholarship Program
The second annual Fall Foot Race to benefit the Genesis Nursing Scholarship Program will be held Saturday, Oct. 4 at Prairie Heights Park in Davenport.
There will be a 5k run/walk and a one mile fun run/walk starting at 9 a.m. Prairie Heights Park is located off 53rd Street and Eastern Ave. in Davenport.
The event is coordinated by Genesis Health Promotion Department and Genesis Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Genesis Nursing Scholarship Program, which provides scholarships to college nursing students and to Genesis employees who seek baccalaureate or graduate degrees in nursing.
Research has shown that lower mortality rates, fewer medication errors, and positive outcomes are all linked to nurses prepared at the baccalaureate and graduate degree levels.
There will be awards for the three overall male and female top finishers. Medals will be awarded to age group winners. Long sleeve t-shirts will be available to everyone registered on or before Sept. 24.
Registration is available at www.genesishealth.com. For questions, call (563) 421-3871.
