Video contest!!! – Run For the Trails

runnersVideo contest!!! Grab your cellphone, camera or video camera & shoot a creative, fun, funny or motivational video encouraging people to sign up for the Run for the Trails Run/Walk on Sept. 28 & you could win!!!

The Run for the Trails is a 10k, 5k or 1 mile fun run on Sept. 28th in Oconto Falls. The run is a fundraiser to help establish a fund to create, maintain and improve a trail system in the Oconto Falls area. Some areas we are looking at starting work on is around the schools, like along County I and along Columbia St. by the new football fields. If you have been on some recreational trails before like the Fox River Trail, you can imagine the possibilities, nice wide paved trails that connect to already established sidewalk systems. We would hope to add embellishments such as sidewalks, landscape areas, possibly even fitness stations and signs. Our committee also hopes to work with the City and State on getting sidewalks in where it makes sense to have them as well, further connecting the trail system.

What we want from you is a video encouraging people to sign up for this AWESOME RUN/WALK EVENT! You can highlight the purpose of the event as a fundraiser for the Trail fund, you can go at it from a fitness angle, like how awesome it is to run/walk & be fit, or how much FUN the event will be, whatever you think… be creative, funny, etc. The website to register for the run if you can incorporate that any way possible, as well as so that you can go to the site for more info is:
