3/1/2017


This year’s Lub Dub logo was specially created to celebrate the 10th anniversary. Callis Integrated Marketing provides in kind graphics services for the Lub Dub each year as a way to remember Camye Callis Gaspard.

Sedalia, Missouri, March 1, 2017 — On your mark, get set, GO! It’s time for the Bothwell Foundation’s tenth annual Lub Dub Run, presented locally by Central Bank of Sedalia. Lace up your shoes and get your heart pumping to prevent the number one cause of death in Pettis and Benton County, cardiovascular disease.

 

The Bothwell Foundation will hold its tenth annual Lub Dub Run on Saturday, April 29 at the Bothwell Regional Health Center. The Lub Dub, named after the sound of a healthy heartbeat, benefits the Camye Callis Gaspard Memorial Heart Fund, which helps finance improvements in cardiovascular treatment at Bothwell Regional Health Center and in Pettis and Benton Counties.

 

“The Lub Dub run is an exceptional event for both competitive runners and beginners,” said Rick Schlesselman, Lub Dub race director and Bothwell Foundation board member.  “This event is a community event and we encourage everyone to come out and walk, run, volunteer or just cheer on the participants.”

 

The Lub Dub Run includes 10K and 5K runs, a 5K walk and a kids run.  All events begin and end at the Bothwell Regional Health Center’s south parking lot on East 15th Street.  Registration is available online at www.brhc.org by clicking on the Lub Dub Run logo.  For more information or to volunteer, call the BRHC Foundation at 660-829-7786.
