Events 2021


Registration is now open for our Virtual 5K!

You can participate in the 5K anywhere and began anytime you choose on October 30, by walking, running or hiking.

2021 Virtual 5K Walk/Run 



Things Look Different This Year & That's ok

The thing is – When the going gets tough; the community gets stronger. Our High Country Community is one of the best and we not only take pride in it, we also want to be a contributing part of that greatness. Being a non-profit focused on health, we feel it is our duty to do our part to keep everyone healthy by taking our annual 5K walk/run online and holding a virtual event. We hope you will join us in the spirit of joy and giving!
