UPDATED MONDAY JUNE 13, PRELIMINARY EVENT FOLLOW UP REPORT: We had great weather and are grateful for all the support for our second annual Box Elder Runs Strong event .
We had close to 50 runners for the 5K. Loved having Vulcraft Utah sponsoring 23 runners- with several winning runners in the group.
The Company Run got off to a good and fun start with 7 teams showing up to show their stuff- pictures and more on that coming soon. We had a blast. Thank you to Rob Bishop and DJ Bott for emceeing.
Our extra youth/family events were well attended - with attendance twice what we had last year. The local high school drill team - the Rockettes - were great to help us with these events.
The Rockettes also helped with setting up the nonprofits and community service organization booths. The result was a colorful and interesting collection of booths highlighting their services as well as volunteer opportunities and funding needs.
We are grateful to our supporters and funders and will have them acknowledged on this web page in the next day or two. A big thanks to the Brigham Kiwanis that matched the first $1500 in donations .
More pics and a big thanks to all who came and/or supported our efforts!

More about our June 2022 event
This was our second annual Box Elder Runs Strong event. We had a great weather and a great time and look forward to an even bigger event next year.
The 5 K We had 50 runners sign up this year. And it looks like we will have more corporate support next year as the corporate competition looks like it will be heating up. We are grateful to Vulcraft Utah for signing up 20+ of the 5K runners. They get the title of the most Community Supportive Employee's team. ( And the healthiest !!)
THE COMPANY RUN was new this year and an event that we enjoyed. We invited local businesses to show their stuff by putting together a 1-4 person relay team that could wear or carry product or signage that best represents their product or service. We had 7 who took on the challenge and they did not disappoint.
CREATIVES BOOTHS and More : We had 22 local non-profits represented with a lot of free, family friendly hands on activities and crafts to come see and participate in. They were all excited to be present, share their stories, tell you about volunteer opportunities, and meet their mission one bit better by offering an interactive activity.

SPECIAL YOUTH/FAMILY EVENTS:
Bike Parade: 20 + Youth brought bikes and helmets and decorated their bikes for a bike ride around the courthouse. This was sponsored by the Box Elder Community Pantry.
Hero race: We had over 25 youth show up to don masks and capes and join Spider man, Superman, and super lamb in a race around the courthouse . Capes and masks were provided by the Brigham Suicide Prevention program.
The Pet Walk: We had a few people bring their favorite well behaved pet and join the crowd as they parade around the block and show off their stuff. They offered - prizes and awards for tricks and costumes and more.
DONATIONS: All donations collected on this day will go directly to helping many of our smaller non-profits. Check out the Non-profits Partner page for more information. The Kiwanis matched the first $1500 of donations collected. A final tally will be available later this week. But we are hoping to raise a little more to really benefit the 13 nonprofits registered. Please consider any way you can help big or small! Donations link
