Governor’s Council Encourages Community Participation at Local Event

Curamus Terram and Goodison Good Tyme has been recognized as a quality physical activity event by the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness.


The event will be held on Saturday September 17th, 2011. The Curamus Terram is an opportunity for the whole family to exercise and have fun together. The event includes a ½ Mile kids Run, 5K, 10K, and a half-Marathon.  Goodison Good Tyme will be held on the same day featuring various outdoor family events including inflatable bouncers, music, hikes & crafts. There is also a Cider Mill located within Goodison. Bring the family and enjoy one of the best-kept secrets in Lower Michigan! Volunteers are welcome and will receive a free lunch!

            Part of the proceeds from this year’s Curamus Terram event will be donated to the Paint Creek Trail Commission.

            The Governor’s Council endorses local, regional and state events to acknowledge an organization’s ability to plan and carry out a quality event that significantly contributes to the health and well-being of Michigan residents. Curamus Terram exemplifies this core value and is endorsed by the Governor’s Council.

            “By endorsing local events all across the state, we hope to bring attention to the importance of physical activity and encourage our citizens to take responsibility for their health,” said Marilyn Lieber, president and CEO of the Governor’s Council. “These local events can have a tremendous impact on health care costs that present a significant challenge for our state’s economy.”  


            “This event, which began in 2002, was started to highlight the beauty of Oakland Township while encouraging people to be active participants. The courses were chosen not only because of their beauty, but because of the personal toughness it required to complete it. Everyone that has completed it, feels a sense of accomplishment!  These races were designed to challenge people and be memorable to everyone who participates.”

                                                                                                Marc Edwards, Oakland Township Trustee


            In order to become an endorsed event, an organization must complete an application form for review. Some criteria that is taken into consideration includes providing a positive, safe physical activity experience using qualified officials and benefiting a nonprofit or charitable organization.
