Members of the Mississippi Annual Conference are encouraged to participate in the fourth annual Arise! Shine! 5K Run/Walk.

The 2008 event will be at 6:30 a.m. June 10 at Christ UMC site of the conference. Participants may elect to run or walk the 3.1 mile course. In addition to conference members, anyone interested is invited to participate.

In addition, Amazing Pacers earn 10,000 HealthBux for completing the 5K. If a Pacer is not physically able to walk or run the 5K due to an illness or injury, he or she should contact Lee Burdine for an alternative.

Pacers earn 9,600 HealthBux for completing the pre-journey screening/equipment check at Annual Conference, which includes a non-fasting finger prick blood test for glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure, and body mass index screenings and a brief review of results, miles walked, etc., during the 2007-2008 Amazing PACE journeys.

Pacers spend HealthBux immediately at the Amazing Pace marketplace at Annual Conference or save them for a larger purchase in the future.

The Amazing Pace celebration and awards luncheon will be held June 10.
