The first Bassett Cupola 5K Run/Walk will take place on Sunday, Oct. 13, at 10 a.m. at the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown.
“The inspiration for the Cupola 5K came from a hospital wellness initiative to promote activity and healthy living among staff, as it’s recognized that health care workers often find it hard to make time to be well,” said Stacy Nelson, FNP-C, chair of Bassett Medical Center’s Wellness Committee, in a news release. “Many are training and asking their friends and family to join them. The whole community is welcome to participate in what will be an annual event to promote wellness.”
