SalmonFalls Family Healthcare of Somersworth is thrilled to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 1st Annual St. Mary Academy 5K Run/Walk in Dover, to be held on Saturday, April 13th at 9:00 am.
As St.MaryAcademy’s mission states, it is “a Catholic faith community dedicated to the education and growth of children in an atmosphere of peace, justice and love.” The academy is celebrating its centennial with events like the 5K run/walk, the Alumni Gala and Auction, which offers one year of free tuition to one lucky winner, and more.
SalmonFalls Family Healthcare strives to promote a healthy lifestyle for its patients and the community. The health care providers educate families about preventive care, smart food choices and exercise habits, so sponsoring an event like this that encourages physical activity was a natural fit. Claire Menard, a pediatric nurse practitioner at Salmon Falls, takes it one step further by promoting 5210 Healthy NH, a program that fights childhood obesity, with her patients and with the schools in surrounding communities. “I am thrilled that SFFH is sponsoring the 5K race/walk for St Mary Academy! The event encourages community participation in a fun, fitness activity and this corresponds nicely with our 5210, healthy lifestyle campaign. On a personal note, I am very happy to support an event at the school my children attended.”
Salmon Falls has just re-located to 7 Works Way in Somersworth, right in front of the WorksFamilyHealth & FitnessCenter.
The SMA 5K Run/Walk will begin and end at St.MaryAcademy, located at 222 Central Ave. in Dover, NH. The certified race course will lead participants through Historic Dover and the Dover Community Trail. There will be chip timing, and tech t-shirts will be available for the first 125 registrants. Registration is only $20 or $25 for day-of. Sign up at https://milleniumreg.com/sma-5k.
