Earth Day Run

CentraCare Health is committed to bringing wellness activities like the Earth Day Run to Central Minnesota. Carrying forward a strong tradition of community health, we strive to make the healthy choice, the easy choice for people everywhere, every day.

So come join us on Friday, April 19 at River's Edge Convention Center in downtown St. Cloud and discover a new adventure at this year's 20th Anniversary Earth Day Run.
