ODESSA -- Medical Center Hospital of Odessa is hosting a charity run to raise funds for the services of the Medical Center Health Care System Foundation.

They provide a home away from home for families of adult patients who are being treated for series illnesses or injuries.

They also help nurses achieve continued education and they stay up to date on our ever loving healthcare environment.

MCH also provides a support system for patients who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Those are just some of the services the medical center health care system foundation benefits.

This coming Saturday you have a chance to help fund the local foundation at their annual Mission Fitness Desert Dash and Spring Fling.

Registration for the 5K is 35 dollars and 45 dollars for the 10k.

Along with the runs there will be jumpers, food trucks, water games and even a health fair.

And for the first 100 children checking in the Permian Basin Bicycle Association will be giving away bike helmets.

The events start at 8 a.m.
