Grand River Hospital District will once again be offering free sports physicals to local student-athletes who live in western Garfield County.

In the Battlement Mesa/Parachute area, the free sports physicals will be held at Grand River Medical Clinic in Battlement Mesa. The girls clinic will be held on Tuesday, June 12, and the boys clinic will be Thursday, June 14. Both will be held from 4-6 p.m.

In Rifle, the free sports physicals clinic will be held at Grand River Specialty Clinic at Grand River Hospital and Medical Center in Rifle. The girls clinic will be Tuesday, June 19, and the boys clinic will be on Wednesday, June 20. Both clinics will be from 4-6 p.m.

Since there is a limited time period to perform the physicals, there are requirements. Students must have a completely filled out and signed physical form before they come to the clinic. Forms are available online at http://www.grhd.org or at Grand River Hospital and Medical Center.

Students must come to the clinic wearing shorts and athletic shoes. All physicals are done on a first-come, first-served basis.

The exams at the sports physical clinic are completely free. Grand River also offers sports physicals throughout the regular summer months as a scheduled appointment for $35, which is half the cost of a regularly scheduled office visit.

For more information about the free sports physicals, call 625-1100 or visit http://www.grhd.org.

Kathryn Senior and Elk Creek Elementary School will be hosting a CrossFit 5K Run fundraiser at the park behind Kathryn Senor Elementary School on Saturday, June 9, at 9 a.m.

All proceeds go toward purchasing fitness equipment for the physical education programs at both schools.
