The Center for Health Improvement and the HaysMed Foundation are sponsoring the sixth annual free KidsQuest this summer. Kids will be encouraged to log 40 miles of fitness by running, walking, biking or swimming on their own. As they achieve mileage they will earn prizes sponsored by various businesses. This year’s theme is based on traveling through the solar system with various stops along the way.

KidsQuest is recommended for children pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.

KidsQuest will begin on May 3 at the HaysMed Fitness Trail. Registration begins at 6 p.m. and will be followed by a 2-mile run/walk. The adventure will start at the shelter house located behind HaysMed. Participants are encouraged to park in parking lot I on the southeast side of the hospital. The finale will be Aug. 2 with another 2-mile run/walk and watermelon feed at 6 p.m.

To register, go to or registrations will be taken at the kickoff May 3. If you register by April 25 you will receive a free T-shirt.
