Greetings from the Hess Cancer Foundation,
We hope this email finds you healthy and happy. As you know, the Hess Cancer Foundation promotes staying fit, and what better way to stay fit than running, biking, and swimming (hmm, maybe triathlons would be a better way). This coming Saturday, we’re promoting 2 events; one for runners and another for bikers.
The first section of the Mountain View Corridor (MVC) in Utah County is opening this Saturday! 2100 North in Lehi offers drivers a new east-west connection between I-15 and Redwood Road. This initial phase of MVC is a frontage road system, similar to a divided highway, with one-way eastbound and westbound roadways and signalized intersections where 2100 North crosses local streets.
A community celebration for the opening of 2100 North in Lehi will take place Saturday, September 24 at North Point Elementary School (1901 North 2300 West, Lehi). At 10:30 a.m., a brief ceremonial ribbon cutting will take place, immediately followed by a 5K Fun Run and Walk on the actual road. A registration fee is required for the Fun Run and Walk, with the proceeds donated to local charities, including the Hess Cancer Foundation, Anything for a Friend, The Boys and Girls Club of Utah County and North Point Elementary. The road will open to live traffic after the race and community celebration.
Visit the project website, udot.utah.gov/mountainviewutcounty, to register for the 5K Fun Run and Walk. More information about the project, the roadway configuration and new driving patterns is also available on the project website.
And for you bikers, don’t miss the biking event on September 24 – the Heber Valley Century Ride hosted by Bike2Bike.org! Check out their website at http://wp.bike2bike.org/index.php/rides/heber-valley-century-september-24-2011. A portion of the proceeds of this event will be donated to the Hess Cancer Foundation. We’re looking for volunteers for this event, so if you would like to volunteer, please contact me.
Thanks for your support!
