Cook County's "Move It" month was successful
The circumference of the earth is just under 25,000, and this May, Cook County residents walked, ran, biked and paddled the equivalent of over halfway around it, covering the distance around Lake Superior 13 times over. Over 200 people participated in the third annual Move It! Get Active Cook County! event sponsored by the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic and numerous other entities, logging in their miles and minutes exercised on the clinic’s website for all the world to see. The total time they logged added up to 146 24-hour days.
Winners of a drawing held at the conclusion of the event are as follows:
Ages 18 and under - Hazel M. Kemp, $150 gift certificate to Superior North Outdoor Center in Grand Marais
Ages 19-64 - Sue Nordman, $150 gift certificate to Sawtooth Outfitters in Tofte
Ages 65 and over - Frankie Jarchow, $150 gift certificate to Stone Harbor in Grand Marais
