3rd Annual Art of Women's Health 5K


Despite the cool, damp air, over a hundred runners/walkers participated in the 3rd annual Art of Women’s Health 5K hosted by Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital (SGCMH). There were not only participants from the local area, but Farmington and even St. Charles, Mo.
Dr. Theresa Cavins, Director of Breast Care Services at SGCMH, gave a brief welcome before the feet hit the pavement.
“Actions always speak louder than words,” she said. “We’re celebrating women’s health. By being here tonight, you realize that small changes can make a big difference to your health. Thanks for taking the first steps to being advocates for your own health."
Runners and visitors celebrated the end of the event with wine and chocolates at Dr. Cavins’ art studio, Life is Art, at 109 North Main. The overflow from the art gallery spread into the street and sidewalks as many participants explored the downtown area and took part in some of the other 4th Friday Art Walk festivities.
