Approximately 106 runners and 84 walkers participated to raise money for the Prairie Lakes Caring Club House, a service of the Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation. Two thousand dollars was generously donated to the Caring Club House, located on Prairie Lakes’ campus in Watertown, SD. Shown presenting the check are members of the Hospital Hill Run Committee: Tom Beaudry, Dr. Dan Reiffenberger, Barb McBrien and Kris Munger. Gratefully accepting this donation are Alison Gilbertson, Executive Director of the Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation and Linda Page, Caring Club House Caretaker.
