The work of the Platte River Fitness Series would not be possible without public/private partnerships with our local businesses and civic organizations. For information on how to sponsor the PRFS, please contact Trudy Merritt, series director, at (308) 535-6772 or

Our corporate partner

Without the long-standing and generous support of Great Plains Health, our fitness initiative would not be possible. Funds provided to the Platte River Fitness Series provide the awards, banquet and prize money for the Platte River Fitness Series Points Competition and Finisher Challenge. These funds help support the Autumn River Run and Jingle Bell 5K outright, and also go toward additional initiative outreach like Leading Ladies Nebraska, Platte River FitKids, Get Up and Get Started 5K Program for Beginners and the Kids Klub 5K fitness program. Great Plains Health truly cares about the health and wellness of our communities.
