Can you run a mile?

Angela & Rebecca

One of our PA students is a finalist in Wellmark’s Whip It 180 challenge! Angela Nelson is now training with Rebecca Meyer from “The Biggest Loser” to get yourself on a healthy track. She wants to get herself in shape so she can help her future patients live healthful lives. We support her and know she can do it!

The culmination of the challenge will end with a race called Grand Blue Mile, a 1-mile race in downtown Des Moines. Angela is going to run it and you could too. The idea of the GBM is to bring the community together and challenge everyone to run (or walk) the mile in celebration of wellness. It’ll be a timed race and there’s several categories, including one for kids. It’s $25 to run but after that covers your cost, the excess goes to Drake Relays & Iowa Kidstrong. Fun event!
