Our special guests this morning were Becky Beach of the Iowa Barnstormers and Erick Branstad of Iowa's Healthiest State Initiative. They have teamed up to bring a special event to Des Moines! It will be called "Running of the Bulls" and will feature a 5,000 yard run (approximately at 5K) with the Iowa Barnstormer players and will benefit the Iowa Healthiest State Initiative! The event is May 11th and will consist of three groups...walkers, joggers and competitive runners. It starts at Wells Fargo Arena, across the Center Street bridge, thru the East Village, up to the Capitol and then back to Wells Fargo Arena, inside the arena and cross the touchdown line on the Iowa Barnstormer field! Entry fee of $35.00 includes a Barnstormer ticket, a t-shirt and more, and you can register at www.iowahealthieststate.com or at www.theiowabarnstormers.com. There will also be a Kids Zone for the kids to learn a routine to perform at half-time of a Barnstormers game.
