Motivational Mile

It’s not the longest course at the Bismarck Marathon, but the Motivational Mile has participants taking some of the biggest steps toward achieving health goals. On Friday, September 18, the  CHI St. Alexius Motivational Mile will serve as a celebration of life for people who have overcome physical and mental obstacles and chose to get back on their feet striving for better health.

With the support of family members, friends, and other onlookers, walkers are sure to feel a sense of accomplishment when they cross the finish line. Many participants have gone through the CHI St. Alexius Rehabilitation facilities, but the event is not limited to individuals with medical conditions.
