Movin' Mountains canceled

Beamer's position eliminated by hospital


The popular Movin' Mountains weight-loss and wellness competition will not be held this year, at least not countywide as it has been the last three years.

Beth Ann Beamer, who as the St. Charles Madras Community Health Improvement Program manager has been the lead Movin' Mountains organizer (along with Carolyn Harvey), reported that she was no longer working for the hospital. Beamer said her position was eliminated by the hospital following a meeting Friday.

At a meeting Monday with Beamer, Harvey and other Movin' Mountains organizers, it was determined not to hold a Madras-based event to go along with Warm Springs, as has been the case over the past three years. The Warm Springs Wellness Program will hold a program in Warm Springs, though.

Concerns about insurance and many other tenuous elements of the event prompted the decision not to have the Madras-based event this year. Other details were not readily available at press time.
