In Team Batesville’s fourth year, “we are excited to announce many changes and new opportunities,” says Andy Allen, one of several organizers. “We look forward to reuniting with our returning members and welcome all new members. We are looking to increase our numbers from years past along with incorporating more students into our running events.”
The community fitness initiative is sponsored by Batesville Community School Corp., Margaret Mary Health and Southeastern Indiana YMCA.
