“4-H 5K Run for Health” Set for Nov. 17 in Aurora, Mo.; Advance Registration is Required by Oct. 31

October 31 is the deadline to get registered for the Lawrence County 4-H sponsored “4-H 5K Run for Health,” which is set to begin at 8 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17 beginning at Oak Park in Aurora.

In addition to helping raise funds for Lawrence County 4-H members, those who register will participate in a fun, healthy activity and be eligible for a number of awards.

“Healthy Lifestyles is just one of 4-H’s initiatives,” said Karla Deaver, a 4-H youth development specialist with University of Missouri Extension. “We are hoping to make this an annual event that will not only help us send 4-H members on trips and help fund other educational activities, but will also help the community engage with our members and volunteers in a fun, healthy way.”

The cost to register for this first-time event is $15 for 4-H members and volunteers, and $20 for non-4-H members. Advanced registration is required by Wednesday, Oct. 31.

For more information on the event or to register, call MU Extension at 417-466-3102 or go online to

“The Lawrence County 4-H Council is excited about this event, and see it as an opportunity to promote 4-H in the area, as well as provide families with a fun, healthy activity,” said Deaver.
