A Crossroads thank you

To the editor:

We at the Crossroads Mall would like to say thank you to everyone that participated in the Lunch Laps at the Mall, Feb. 2 through Apr. 27. This year Active Health partnered with us and we truly appreciated their support. A special thank you to Shoe Sensation for hosting the sign in table and vendor area throughout the program. Alpha Media helped us kick off the event with a live remote and we truly appreciate that.

Each week participants kept track of the number of laps they walked around the mall. It was wonderful to see the improvement and dedication of each participant as the weeks went on.

During most walk days vendors were present to give health related information to the walkers, which included: Active Health, Iowa Central Community College Dental Hygiene, The Rec, Community Health, Webster County Public Health, La’James, Walgreens, Unity Point Health Living, and Opportunity Village Autism Center. The vendors shared information, provided a service and answered the questions of the walk participants.

The participants were able to register to win weekly prizes. Thank you to the following businesses for providing these incentives: Tropical smoothie, Fort Dodge Ford, Gordy’s at Rustix, Graham Tire, Applebee’s, Perkins, Panchero’s, Shimkat, WalMart, Shoe Sensation, Active Health, Fort 8, Sports Page, Walgreens, Kemna Auto, Holiday Inn Express and The Rec. Community sponsors help make programs like this continue to exist.

Again, thank you to everyone who participated, presented, gave a prize, or supported this program.
