The Eden Prairie A.M. Rotary Club is encouraging you to get outside and enjoy the season by participating in their Winter Wellness Day events on Saturday, Jan. 18, at Staring Lake Park.
The club will hold a 5K run/walk and a 5K skate-ski race at 9 a.m. at the park. All proceeds go toward the club’s mission to put “Service Above Self” in Eden Prairie, through grants and other projects.

After the races, enjoy the City of Eden Prairie’s “Winter Blast” from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., also at Staring Lake Park. Activities include sledding, ice-skating, kick-sledding, snowshoeing, art activities, and food trucks.
You can also support A.M. Rotary’s work by purchasing one or more raffle tickets from club members prior to Jan. 18 or at the Saturday events. Raffle tickets cost $10 each and there are three prizes from Scheels sporting-goods store in Eden Prairie: an $800 gift card, a $400 gift card, and a $250 gift card. The drawing is at 2 p.m. at the park, but winners need not be present.

Scheels and TC Running are major sponsors of Rotary’s Winter Wellness Day.
