Parkview Regional Hospital and Limestone Medical Center Present "Building Bridges" 5K

September 17, 2018


Mexia, TX – Limestone Medical Center in Groesbeck and Parkview Regional Hospital in Mexia are again sponsoring the 2018 “Building Bridges for Better Health,” a five-kilometer run/one-mile walk scheduled for Saturday, September 29th  at 8 am.

“You’ll notice some changes to this year’s race,” said Jennifer Lynch, Community Outreach Director for Parkview Regional Hospital. “The bridge is under construction, so people will have to enter at the south end of 402 and we want them to park facing away from the bridge (southwardly) for expedited exit after the event. Rather than starting ON the bridge, as in years past, we will start the race NEAR the bridge, as it’s symbolic of the bridges we are trying to build between our two communities,” Lynch explained.

In an effort to foster collaboration between the two hospitals to improve the health and wellness of the communities they serve, Limestone Medical Center and Parkview Regional Hospital join hands each year to present this annual 5k to the public they serve.

Participants and attendees will benefit from health information and wellness tips that will be available at the event. Both hospitals, as well as other organizations will provide the valuable health and wellness information.

Pre-registration for the event has begun and runs through Friday, September 21.  Registration forms can be found at Limestone Medical Center and the Family Medicine Center in Groesbeck; Parkview Regional Hospital and Parkview Clinic in Mexia; or online at and The entry fee is $20 prior to September 29; and $25 on race day. Participants 12 and under are free with a registered adult.

Prizes will be awarded to overall male, overall female, and overall walker. T-shirts will be given to all pre-registered walkers.
