Kid Fit 2018 ended with one of the most fun events of the year.
One hundred and forty-six kids came to Bailey Park on Thursday evening July 12 for a swim in the Raymond H. Berry Community Pool, an obstacle run, and a splashing dash through the mud.
After all the activities, medals were awarded to all participants and four grand prizes – two $25 gift cars and two kayaks with life preservers – were raffled off.
The Mud race and obstacle course on Bailey Avenue and family swim night were the fifth of five events for this year’s Kid Fit. Kid Fit is organized locally by Shaylene Herndon from Bright Futures, Dana Haugue from Full Fitness Spectrum, and Tri Counties Community Network. Burney High School Senior Hailey Shaver assisted Shaylene Herndon in the program for her Senior Project.
Pit River Casino donated $5000 to fund the 2018 Kid Fit program in Burney. Additional funds were also provided by Mountain Cruisers and PG&E Employees Funds.
