Silver Mile returns for 8th year this weekend


It's time for the Silver Mile again. The event has been promoting fitness and education for eight years.  The Silver Mile Run for Education & Health and Fitness Fair kicks off Friday night with pre-registration events and a dinner starting at 5:30pm.  

Registration for the runs and walks begins at 7:15am on Saturday.  This year, a 10K run has been added to the 5K Run/Walk and the Mile Walk.  The 10K and 5K Run for Education races start at 9 a.m. and winds through neighborhoods near Penn High School and finishes on the Penn track.  The 1-Mile Fun Walk will kick off at 9:05 a.m. Awards will follow at 10:15 in the main arena for various age categories.

The Health & Fitness Fair will begin at 8:30 a.m. and have hands-on activities including a wide variety of health screenings.  There will be more than 80 Silent Auction items up for bid including Notre Dame football tickets, prime Penn High School parking spots, golf packages, restaurant packages, sports camps, an iPad Mini and much more. Proceeds benefit the PHM Education Fund.

The Summer Family Fitness Expo, from 8:30 a.m. until noon, will have free massages and a wide array of health related products and services for the entire family.  The PHM Student Talent Showcase will provide additional family entertainment.
