Go The Extra Mile

Will you go the extra mile for Covenant Kids? 
Every year, the community gets moving to support Covenant HealthCare’s pediatric programs and services. Go the Extra Mile for Covenant Kids is an independent fundraising event established by Laura Fiore, a community volunteer, to benefit the Covenant Kids fund managed at Covenant HealthCare Foundation.

This event equips participants with the training they need to finish the race, whether they’re a beginner or advanced runner. It also features pace team leaders, who will assist groups of runners in keeping a steady pace and finishing the race at their desired time. Just like your support Covenant Kids, we’re here to support you along the way. Because we believe that everyone should embrace a healthy lifestyle for a lifetime.

For more information on training for the annual Go the Extra Mile for Covenant Kids, contact Tina Dowe of the Saginaw YMCA at 989.753.7721 or TDowe@SaginawYMCA.org.
