PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Nearly 200 folks were out in downtown Pikeville Saturday morning for Pikeville Medical Weight Loss Surgery Center's 'Reclaim your Life 5K.'
Event organizers say the event's focus is on their bariatric patients but they also want to promote fitness and a healthy lifestyle among all populations. There was also a one mile fun run and walk.
Laura Damron says, "We have had many success stories over the past few years and we wanted to do an event for them and honor them and give them a chance to get out and reclaim their life, I mean they have reclaimed their life."
Proceeds of the event go to under insured weight loss surgery patients.
