New Look for 2012 Race

In 2012, for the first time in 22 years, Story County Medical Center’s Beat the Street race will be conducted as a function of the Story County Medical Center Endowment Foundation. The Story Medical Foundation strives to champion health in our community. Assuming hosting responsibilities for Beat the Street allows the foundation to meet that goal, while at the same time providing charitable deductibility for the sponsors of the event.

In conjunction with the new era of planning, the logo was redesigned to give the historic race a new feel. Committee members wanted the logo to embrace the streetscape of Nevada, and local graphic designer, Jen Jeffrey, designed the new logo to do just that.
