Going for a nice little run and a swim can be refreshing, even at the end of December.
>Fundraiser run, swim at end of December
Juniper Junction Relief Nursery, along with Community Health Improvement Partnership and Madras Aquatic Center, have teamed up to present the "Freeze Your Fanny" two-discipline event at 10 a.m. Dec. 29 at the MAC.
The event combined a 5K run/walk (3.1 miles) and a 500-yard swim and the entry fee is just a donation to Juniper Junction, no matter the amount.
For those who donate more than $20, they will receive embroidered stocking caps, in both University of Oregon and Oregon State University colors.
The winners of the event, the top-finishing male and female, will receive a ham for their efforts.
After the event, there will be a chili and cornbread feed and each participant will receive a free swim/hot tub pass to the MAC to "thaw their fanny," according to the flyer provided by Juniper Junction.
All proceeds benefit Juniper Junction, which works with Jefferson County famimiles with infants and toddlers who have multiple risk factors.
