Cox Health Medical is coming back to Springfield on June 3

Race day will include the mile and the 5K races early in the morning, followed by an awards ceremony at The Meyer Center basketball court. The mile race is split into 12 age groups while the 5K is divided into nine.

After the race and the awards ceremony, there is the Kids Zone and Expo. At this post-race event, racers can enjoy refreshments provided by Subway. The Kids Zone and Expo will also have interactive games and activities for kids, as well as vendors and other interactive booths.

The Medical Mile supports the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The Children’s Miracle Network is an organization that supports 170 member hospitals in the United States and Canada that helps fund critical treatments and services for children, as well as vital medical equipment and charitable care. Since its founding in 1983, the Children’s Miracle Network has raised over $5 billion to support hospitals and their young patients as well as raise awareness for children’s hospitals.

The Medical Mile is sure to be a great time for the whole family. Celebrate health and wellness and demonstrate your support for the children of Springfield by walking or running in the mile or 5K.
