December Zion Duo Challenge - December 13th

Want to stay in shape this winter? Be a part of the Zion Duo Challenge, a FREE (yes, you read that right, FREE) virtual two mile run/walk during the winter months. This month's challenge takes place on December 13.
 
What are the rules? Starting at dawn on December 13, run or walk 2 miles in your neighborhood, on a nature trail, or even on your treadmill and submit the results via Google form. We have several age categories that will help you compare your result against others your age (age 0-4th grade, 5th-8th grade, 9th grade-99 years old). The winner in January and subsequent months will be the person who improves the most against their time month-to-month. No entry fee--this is FREE. Simply fill out the form and we will publish the results soon after the event concludes.
 
What about this month? Who is the winner? Pastor Ripke will also run two miles on December 13. Those who run (or walk) faster than Pastor Ripke this month will earn the designation "Faster than the Pastor".
 
What if I want to run for a cause? Again, the Zion Duo Challenge is FREE--no donations needed! Pick a cause near and dear to you and go for it! If you'd like a suggestion, here's two: the McHenry County Conservation Foundation (https://www.mchenryconservation.org/get_involved/donate/give_a_gift.php) or the Zion Tuition Assistance Fund (submit donations to the Church office). But again--this event is FREE...no donation required!
 
Look forward to seeing you on the roads and trails this winter!
