Step Out With the April Fools' 5K!
Because Staying Healthy is No Joke!
April Fools’ 5K Run / Walk: Come out for healthy fun and giggle your way through Hacienda Business Park on Sunday, April 7th. For individuals, families, and teams. Register online at www.axisaprilfools5k.org. Check-in Axis Hacienda location at 5925 W. Las Positas Blvd. from 7:30 – 8:30 am, race start time is 9:00 am. Costumes encouraged--because laughter is the best medicine. Sponsored by the Foundation for Axis Community Health in support of medical services for those in need.
The April Fools 5K will raise funds to pay for medical care for low-income and uninsured families. Proceeds will support immunizations and check-ups for children, prenatal visits for expectant moms, and chronic disease care for people with asthma, diabetes, hypertension and other illnesses.
Axis Community Health provides a medical home that helps people stay healthy, resulting in decreased unnecessary emergency department visits and hospitalizations--which helps lower healthcare costs. One medical visit to Axis to treat asthma at a cost of $175 can save thousands of dollars by preventing a visit to the hospital.
In addition to medical care, Axis offers behavioral health and WIC nutrition services. Each year Axis helps more than 14,000 Tri-Valley residents.
