Longest Day, Summer Solstice, First Day of Summer: TODAY!

The North Pole is at its maximum tilt toward the sun (~23.5 degrees) on this day, giving us the longest period of sunlight time all year.  Along with this comes the longest periods of twilight, both at sunrise and sunset.  What better way to enjoy this than to do a 5K run!  Medford is having a Longest Day Run at 7:30pm TONIGHT.  The run partners with Friends of the Animal Shelter (FOTAS), giving a percentage of the profits to their cause to help animals in need of homes.  You can register for this 3.1-mile race tonight, $25 cash and exact change only.  Get some exercise around Bear Creek Park, celebrate the summer solstice, support a good cause, and they’ll even have Little Caesar’s pizza at the finish line to take care of dinner for you.  Can’t beat that!  Paragon Orthopedic Center encourages you to get moving and support our community.  Read more details and sign up here:
