Find Your Strength Family Fun Run

Join us for a 5k, 1k, and after-party to benefit Bonner General Health!

Find Your Strength is an all-ability family fun run on September 24, 2022. This race includes a 5K, 1K, and finishes with an after-party with fun for the whole family. Proceeds go toward the purchase of an Exoskeleton, state-of-the-art rehab technology for those who have lost their ability to walk due to stroke, injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and more.

Choose between the 5K, 1K, or run both! Both races will be chip timed. Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each age group for the 5K race only.

5K: Start & finish line at Sandpoint City Beach, turn north on Sand Creek trail, turn around after benches as the trail starts to incline, and return to City Beach via the same route.

1K: Start & finish line at Sandpoint City Beach, turn north running on the sidewalk in front of the Trinity at City Beach, turn east onto Windbag Marina, and return to City Beach via the same route. We encourage our 1K runners to “find their strength” by dressing up as their favorite superheroes!

Thank you for supporting the 14th Annual Heart Ball!

Because of you, we raised $235,000 for time-sensitive emergency imaging!

Thank you to all who sponsored, volunteered, and generously donated to the 14th Heart Ball on behalf of the Bonner General Health Foundation. Time-sensitive imaging ensures Bonner General can deliver timely, effective, and safe care to our growing community.

The proceeds will fund a state-of-the-art X-ray machine designed specifically for trauma patients. Funds received from a separate grant will be used to construct the additional radiology room that will house the new piece of equipment.
