Welcome to the 9th Moose Miles 5K Run and Walk. The majority of the proceeds of this year’s event will benefit the local children of Mooseheart . Mooseheart is a residential child care facility supported solely by the Moose fraternal organization. The Child City is a home for children and teens, from infancy through high school. Mooseheart cares for youth whose families are unable, for a variety of reasons, to care for them. Some have lost one or both parents, others are living in environments that are not conducive to healthy growth and development. The Moose provides the children with a wholesome homelike environment and the best possible training and education. The proceeds of this event will help to furnish the resources necessary to care for these children. Please help to make this event a memorable and successful one. Hopefully, together with your support, we can raise funds for this important organization. The race course is a 3.1 mile paved course for runners and walkers that starts and finishes at the Moose Lodge in Ottawa. The course winds around the Dayton Township neighborhood featuring two hills and a calming atmosphere. Mile markers will be at each mile as well as water and times available along the course, and at the finish line. Awards will be presented for the top male and female race finishers, as well as the top male and female Moose member finishers. Awards will also be distributed to the top three finishers in specified age groups for males and females. The age groups are as follows: 13 & Under, 14-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, and 80 & Older. Participants will receive a free t-shirt (men’s sizing ) and pork chop lunch provided by the Moose Lodge following the race, while supplies last.
