More than 350 kids participated in the UnitedHealthcare IRONKIDS Chattanooga Fun Run Saturday at Ross’s Landing.
UnitedHealthcare mascot Dr. Health E. Hound helped Senator Bo Watson and Steve Podrasky of UnitedHealthcare kick off the fun run.
Athletes ages 3-13 ran portions of the Little Debbie IRONMAN Chattanooga presented by McKee A Family Bakery. Each athlete received a race bib, T-shirt, gift bag and finisher medal.
This is the sixth year UnitedHealthcare is supporting IRONKIDS in the United States as part of the company’s commitment to help stem the rising tide of childhood obesity through healthy lifestyles.
UnitedHealthcare is sponsoring seven IRONKIDS one-mile fun runs in 2017.
