Baylor Wellness run/walk 5k

This Sat, Coupon code below $10 off.  Great weather. Super 5k!  The Baylor Wellness Run was a very well organized autumn 5k run last year that was well received by Active Houston meetup members.   We expect an even better turnout and experience in the second year of the event.   Monisha is helping in the logistics of the event.  Please register.

As per website …. .. Please join us for the 2nd annual Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) Wellness 5K Race/Walk and 1K Kid's Race, organized by BCM students. This event promotes exercise and healthy eating as integral parts of health. We hope to educate our future physicians and the community on the broader concepts of wellbeing that extend beyond the clinic and encompass a broader view of health. Stick around after the race at McGovern Commons for a great race party and awards ceremony with food, activities, music, and prizes!

Race proceeds currently fund Recipe for Success and student lead community outreach projects such as: Food Rises, an effort to educate at risk children about the root causes of obesity, and the Refugee Health and Leadership Academy, a training program for young adult refugees in Houston to become health advocates in their community.
