A training program with suggested workouts, called Couch to Cupid, is available online at: www.hannibalparks.org/files/Parks_Rec/Documents/Cupid_Training_Flyer.pdf
Every woman who crosses the finish line will receive a flower. There will be prizes for the first man and woman to finish.
The Hannibal Parks & Recreation is sponsoring the event. Proceeds go to Kids in Motion, which is part of Douglass Community Services. Kids in Motion is an employment program for at-risk teens and pre-teens which teaches the value of work and community. Participants in the KIM program spend time in Riverview Park in the summer, picking up trash, weeding and clearing trails. During the run/walk, KIM members will be on the course cheering on participants.
