Fruita’s Sweet Heart Run and Health Expo features giveaways from Rocky Mountain Orthopaedic Associates, including a new TV


GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (Feb. 6, 2014) – Rocky Mountain Orthopaedic Associates (RMOA) is once again sponsoring the Sweet Heart Run and Health Expo in Fruita this Saturday. All participants in the race will receive a goodie bag and the best-dressed runner will win a new 32 inch HD TV, courtesy of RMOA.


The event, in partnership with Family Health West, features a 5k run/walk and a 10k run through Fruita, starting and finishing at the FruitaCommunity Center. Participants don’t have to win the race in order to walk away with a new TV, though. They just have to be voted as the best-dressed runner there. Winners can be an individual, couple or a group.


Mike Zamora, Outreach Coordinator for RMOA, will determine the winner with help from the audience – a decibel meter will measure the volume of cheering from the crowd and whoever gets the loudest cheers goes home with a new TV.


The race takes place outside the Fruita Community Center on Saturday, February 8 at 10am, with the Health Expo inside the Fruita Community Center from 9 am to 1 pm. The Expo will feature free screenings and education from local health related businesses, and is open to the entire community. There’s still time to register online for the race at or call the Fruita Parks and Rec department at 970-858-0360.
