United Counseling Service held the 8th annual Go the Distance 5K last Sunday before Southwestern Vermont Medical Center’s Community Day. Over 100 runners participated in the event helping to raise over two thousand dollars for UCS Client Wellness. The first three place runners were Carson Thurber, Nikki Harrington and Harrison Kimball. Andrea Malinowski lead a pre-race Zumba warm up and a Kids’ Run Fun with 25 participants followed the 5K.
“Thank you to everyone who participated in Go the Distance. This event is a great way to bring people together and build on our mission of building a stronger community by empowering individuals and families to live healthy and meaningful lives,” said Lorna Mattern, Executive Director of United Counseling Service.
UCS serves children, adults, families, and seniors through nationally recognized counseling, early care and education, and clinical support.
