UW competition on Oct. 4 adding Fun Walk

This year's United Way 2009 Team Mini-Triathlon is expanding to allow walkers an opportunity to participate by entering a One-Mile Fun Walk, which will be held Sunday, Oct. 4, on the Parkview Huntington Hospital campus.

Parkview Huntington Hospital is the title sponsor for both the triathlon and the fun walk.
Registration for the event begins at noon, with opening ceremonies at 1 p.m. The fun walk begins at 1:30 p.m. The registration fee is discounted if paid before Sept. 21, and those who register by that date are guaranteed a long-sleeve T-shirt.

Proceeds from the walk will be used to benefit United Way services and programs.

Race applications are available at the office of United Way of Huntington County, 356 W. Park Drive in Huntington. An application is also available at www.parkview.com.
