Nurse 5K run/walk:

Holland Hospital is excited to invite all students, families, friends and faculty to participate in the 2019 School Nurse 5K Run/Walk on Thursday, October 3 at Holland West Elementary School (NEW LOCATION). The School Nurse 5K Run/Walk is a fun, family-style event to benefit the hospital’s School Nurse Program. This non-competitive event is a perfect way for students and families to enjoy an evening of activity together.

Registration starts at 5 PM with FREE food and entertainment & warm up at 5:45 PM! The best part - students can enter the Run/Walk for FREE by completing ten 30-minute physical fitness activities of their choice prior to the event! Fitness Tracker envelopes are available to students in the main office. The Fitness Tracker can also be found online.

Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Fitness Tracker envelopes can be mailed in or turned in to the school’s main office. Register by September 13th to guarantee a shirt.

Since 1998, Holland Hospital’s School Nurse program has been working to improve the health and well-being of students K – 12 in the greater Holland area. From daily medication administration to treating playground bumps and bruises, the school nurses care for the physical, emotional and social needs of over 12,000 students! Please show your support of your school nurses by participating in the 2019 School Nurse 5k Run/Walk on October 3.
