Washington County 4-H is hosting their 3rd Annual 5k run and one mile walk tonight.  The event is open to all age groups, male and female, and all levels of fitness.  Kati Peiffer, a volunteer with this event says the money raised from this event is used for 4-H enrollment fees.

She says the state requires all 4-H participants to pay $30 toward their enrollment fee, but kids in Washington County only pay $10 and the rest of the fee comes from fund raisers.  The entry fee for the one mile is $15 and the entry fee for the 5k is $20.

The course will be mainly flat, beginning and ending at the Washington County Fairgrounds.  The event is tonight at 6pm with registration at 5:00.  For more information, look here or call the Extension office at 319-653-4811.
