Pay It Forward 5k/1 mile Challenge

On April 2, 2011 at 7am, Payson City Employees’ Wellness Program will host the “Pay It Forward 5k/ 1 mile Challenge.” This event is to encourage the community to become healthier and more active. This is not just for Payson residents but everyone is invited, no matter where they live. 

The Challenge will begin and end at Payson City Memorial Park. Along the course there will be City Council Members, employees, athletes and residents to give encouragement to participants. The event will not be timed, but each participant that finishes the challenge will receive a medallion and certificate.

This isn’t a race but a challenge to all ages to become more active. Many people do not participate in 5k or 1 mile walk/run because they don’t believe in themselves or do not have the money to participate. The goal of this event is to encourage participants that they can complete this task.
