The Rotary Club of Fillmore’s 2016 Heritage Valley 5-10K Run/Fitness Walk and Health Fair will be held on Saturday, May 21, 2016 in front of FUSD offices.
As a new addition this year, our partner, Santa Clara Valley Wellness Foundation will be sponsoring an expanded Health Fair with 20-25 vendors expected. Free groceries to the first 100 families, who participate in the health fair activities, Blood Pressure Screening, Get Fit!, Glucose Screening and more.
Much of the race course follows the bike/walking path along the beautiful Sespe Creek with views of San Cayetano Mountain. Out of town participants join local runners and walkers of all ages. Our event includes a 5K Run/Fitness Walk and a 10K run. This year our 1-mile Fun Run-Walk is open to all. Participants 9 years and under will receive ribbons and a coupon for a free Flo-Yo cone, sponsored by Flo-Yo Frozen Yogurt on Central Avenue.
