To raise funds for a children’s summer camp, the Nevada Diabetes Association wants participants to grab their best western wear and head out on Saturday to the fifth-annual Wild West Cross Country 5K Challenge.  https://lasvegassun.com/news/2017/apr/05/wild-west-5k-challenge-at-bonnie-springs-to-benefi/?_ga=1.245158021.1292562890.1490153411

Participants of the family-friendly event, which runs through Bonnie Springs Ranch in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, have the option to race in the 5K, a 1-mile “fun run” and a quarter-mile dash geared for children under 5.

Registration remains open and those interested can visit crosscountry5k.com for more details.

Proceeds from the event will go to the organization’s Camp Vegas, said Tasha Thatcher, a representative from the Nevada Diabetes Association. http://www.rosemarielv.net
