The Omak Fit 4 Life Coalition was founded by Mid Valley Hospital in 2001 and began with one free family friendly fun run in the fall to encourage community members of all ages to get out and enjoy our beautiful county during the colorful Autumn months.

The coalition has since grown to include many diverse community organizations who provide support by donating their time, sponsoring events or promoting our activities throughout the Okanogan and Methow Valleys. 

Today, we organize four annual fun runs, a Healthy Youth Fair, and several Winter Wellness events in an effort to fulfill our mission.  These events are funded solely by sponsors of our annual Orchards in Bloom 10k & ½ Marathon that occurs each April.  We continue to work diligently to grow the work of our coalition and our promotion of health and wellness for our community members across the lifespan.
