Lake Elmo Woodbury Campus Sponsors Country Mile Race

woodburycountrymileraceThe Lake Elmo/Woodbury campus sponsored the 33rd Annual Woodbury Country Mile half marathon and 5k Aug. 24 hosted by the Woodbury Area Chamber of Commerce.

Rasmussen College campuses are always looking for new ways to get involved in the community, and the Lake Elmo/Woodbury campus decided the race would be a great opportunity this year.

“We wanted to support the local community and the chamber, and we are passionate about health and fitness,” said Mollie Bower, Lake Elmo/Woodbury campus director said. “We are now a Public Benefit Corporation, so this was a great way for us to show community support.”

On race day the weather looked ominous, but Bower, and the others participating in the race, weren’t about to let it get in their way that day.

“It went great,” Bower said. “We were concerned that we might get rained out as it was storming heavily on the way there, but it ended up being perfect running weather.”

The highlight of the event for Bower was finishing the race with her entire family cheering her on in stands. It was her first half marathon and she finished fifth in her age group.
