Portland Metro Area Extension - Healthrun event

Thursday, August 28, 2014 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The Oregon State University Portland Metro Area Extension office will hold a celebration from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 28, to welcome brothers and health activists Isaiah and Jeremiah Godby to the Portland area.

The Godby brothers are students at Oregon State University are running 1,675 miles around Oregon this summer to inspire Oregonians to live a healthier lifestyle.

The “Health Extension Run 2014,” was also designed to educate community residents about the role the OSU College of Public Health and Human Sciences and OSU Extension Service offices in each county play in building healthy communities. The run coincides with the recent accreditation of the College of Public Health and Human Sciences.

The Godbys, who are from the Portland area, departed Corvallis in early July and are scheduled to run from Multnomah Falls to the Portland area on Aug. 28.

The Metro Area Extension office open house and welcome celebration will include prizes and giveaways; opportunities to ride the “milling bike,” a stationary bicycle designed by OSU engineering students to grind grain; and taste-test couscous salad and bulgur pilaf recipes; and other family activities.

Bob’s Red Mill is co-hosting the event and company founder Bob Moore and members of the company’s leadership team also will attend. The extension office is also the site of OSU’s Moore Family Center Outreach Office and the new location of Portland Metro Area 4-H.

Oregon State University alumni, Portland area 4-H members and their families and members of the public are invited to attend. Members of the media are welcome.

Interviews with the Godbys may be arranged directly with the Godby brothers. Their contact information and additional background about the run are available online.
