Earn “Miles” as You Exercise

“Race” around Coos County, Oregon in this second virtual odyssey that will take the participants through some of the most unique locations in the county. Participants can exercise in a number of different ways to earn miles on the virtual platform. Form teams and compete with and motivate your friends and family to start the year off right, achieving your fitness goals, while helping Coos County Families in Need. The Coos County Friends of Public Health are hosting this event to raise money for The Nurses’ Purse fund.

The Nurses’ Purse is a discretionary fund which can be accessed by public health nurses at Coos Health & Wellness to help families in need with essentials such as food, winter clothing, infant care, and payment of medical bills for the uninsured. The relatively small assistance from this fund can help families overcome what seem to be insurmountable obstacles to their health and wellbeing.
