JRMC sponsors 5-day marathon at GJCF

     UnityPoint Health-Jones Regional Medical Center is back to sponsor the Fifth Annual Great Jones County Fair 5-Day Marathon from July 18-22, in an effort to promote wellness.

     The two treadmills will be available once again for runners and walkers so they can walk with a family member or challenge their friends to a friendly competition. Those who take a 15-minute time slot on the treadmills will receive a free 5-Day Marathon t-shirt!

     The treadmills are located at the JRMC booth inside the Berndes Center. Each day of the fair, July 18-22 from noon to 7:45 p.m., JRMC will be passing the baton and logging the miles of each participant to see how many marathons can be completed over the five days. This year’s goal is 15 marathons!

     Registration is free, but participants are responsible for gate entry into the GJCF. Visit the JRMC Facebook page to sign up online for the marathon.

     For more information or to register, call Patricia Ochs at 319-481-6222 or e-mail patricia.ochs@unitypoint.org.
