Crossing Rivers Health, Grant Regional Health Center, Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics, and Southwest Wisconsin Technical College are again partnering to host a 5K Walk/Run this spring. The Steppin’ to Good Health 5K Walk/Run will be held on Saturday, May 13 at 9 a.m. on the campus of Southwest Wisconsin Technical College in Fennimore, WI.

Last year the Couch 2 5k program was funded in part by a Wisconsin Obesity Grant. The 8-week program and race had an estimated 200 participants total. This year, the Steppin’ to Good Health 5k is a modified version of the eight-week Couch to 5K wellness series hosted in 2022. Registrants will now have exclusive access to a private Facebook group where they will receive workout, wellness, and nutrition tips, as well as motivation to work toward their wellness goals leading up to the 5K.

This free event is open for people of all fitness levels - walkers, joggers, runners, and everything in-between. Register online at, or visit Steppin’ to Good Health 5K Walk/Run on Facebook to learn more. Event t-shirts are available for purchase through April 24, 2023.

This event is a collaborative effort led by area healthcare facilities to move the needle on physical activity in our communities. To learn more contact Gundersen Boscobel’s Community Wellness Coordinator, Cameron Novy at (608) 375-6116.
