Skowhegan Weekly 5k Kicks Off 

We first told you about Kimm Cooney back in February.She had received a surprising phone call from talk show host Jenny Jones.Jenny Jones was calling to tell the Skowhegan resident she was receiving a “Jenny’s Heroes” grant.Cooney was picked from thousands of applicants.She took the 2-thousand dollar grant to help purchase a digital timing display and wristbands for a weekly 5k walk and run to promote community wellness.And Saturday, that first 5k walk and run kicked off.” We actually had a table, we had Somerset Heart Health down there, helping set up goal cards for Summer goals because it’s a nine week series that we’re doing. People came, set goals and each week they can check off to see if they reached their goal.”The nine week program will wrap up on Saturday, July 31st.
