Scampering for heart health
Gritman Medical Center will host the seventh Annual Red Skirt Scamper 5K Run/Walk at 9 a.m. Saturday, beginning inside the Ross Entrance at the Palouse Mall.
Shannon Smith, exercise specialist at the Martin Wellness Center, said the event has been well-attended in the past. Even though an unexpected blizzard blew through last year’s scamper, it still drew nearly 70 people.
“The year before, nearly 200 people came out,” Smith said. “Adults, kids and the (UI) Marines ROTC come out in red dresses.”
The run is an out-and-back route heading north on Sheep Road. Prizes for best red dress, best red accessories and best dressed children will be awarded after the run at 10:15 a.m.
Entry to the 5K is by donation. Donations benefit the Gritman Medical Center’s Cardiac Rehab program and Martin Wellness Center programs.
Registration forms are available on the events calendar at gritman.org. Late registration begins at 8 a.m. Saturday in the mall. For more information, call 208-883-9605.
WinterFEAST to feature five-course meal prepared with local ingredients
The Moscow Food Co-op will celebrate local bites and seasonal dishes with the community at 6 p.m. Saturday in the Co-op Café for the first “shared food experience” of the year.
The Co-op’s WinterFEAST will consist of five courses crafted from local ingredients and paired with wine.
Education and Outreach Coordinator Erica Wagner said the Co-op has hosted community dinners in the past, but this will be the first “updated” food celebration.
“These FEASTS will be seasonal event(s),” Wagner said. “It is our goal to put on a FEAST to celebrate local and seasonal ingredients available to us on the Palouse.”
Wagner said the Co-op hopes to educate the community on how to cook with local and seasonal ingredients, as well as open up the opportunity to taste new ingredients and enjoy fresh local fare.
“(The FEAST) is also a way to celebrate and cherish the farmers who work so hard to provide us with healthy and sustainably produced food,” Wagner said.
Tickets for the feast cost $30. For more information, contact Erica Wagner at email@example.com or call the Moscow Food Co-op at 208-882-8537.
