Ripon Medical Center has scheduled its Dickens Dash two-mile winter fun run/walk at 9 a.m. on Saturday December 7 starting at The Village Green in downtown Ripon. The event is part of the Ripon Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Dickens of a Christmas.
Proceeds from this year’s event will help purchase exercise equipment for Ripon Medical Center.
Participants can stay warm and toasty with a free fleece headband and hot apple cider at the finish line. All participants will be entered to win a one-year membership to the new Ripon Medical Center wellness center.
Individual cost is $15 per person before December 6. To register before December 6, visit dickensdash13.eventbrite.com. Race day registration will also be available for $20. The day of the event, cash or checks made payable to Ripon Medical Center will be accepted.
In the event of extreme snow, the event will be held in the halls of Ripon High School.
“We are pleased to be offering this event again as part of the Ripon Area Chamber of Commerce’s successful Dickens of a Christmas event,” according to Katherine Vergos, Ripon Medical Center chief operating officer. “This event provides the perfect opportunity to introduce a fun run/walk that can involve the entire family, and give a positive outlet for another health and wellness-related activity.”
