(Columbia) May 20, 2006 - The Fifth Annual Providence Heart & Sole Women's Five Miler has come and gone, despite a slight delay on Saturday morning for some brief thunderstorms.
Once the weather moved out of the area, the all-women's event featured a five-mile run, and a three and five-mile walk.
If you've never before participated in the Heart & Sole, you missed a real a treat, but don't worry because there's always next year. Click here to visit our Web site where you can view a video from last year's event. If this video doesn't inspire you to participate, nothing will! Be sure to pass along the link to all your friends who might be interested. Participating with your gal pals from church, work or neighborhood makes for a great girls-only activity! And you still have plenty of time to get ready to walk or run with us, so there's simply no excuse!
An event created by women and for women, the Heart & Sole Five Miler donates a portion of its proceeds to help fight heart disease, the number one killer of women. And start saving your gently used running or walking shoes for charity. We're collecting them for the Cooperative Ministry, which serves needy people in the Midlands. Adult and children's sneakers are needed.
