The first annual BBHS Run for Your Life 5K and 1 mile walk will be held at Thompson Park on August 18, 2012. This event will benefit the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC). It is estimated that nearly 93 million Americans are obese and that number is predicted to climb to 120 million within the next five years.
The mission of the OAC is to elevate and empower those affected by obesity through education, advocacy and support. To increase obesity education, the OAC offers a wide variety of free educational resources on obesity, morbid obesity and childhood obesity, in addition to consequences and treatments of these conditions.
Supporting the BBHS Run for Your Life 5K Race and 1 mile walk will not only help provide obesity education but will also spread awareness on ways to treat obesity. Sponsorships from both businesses and individuals are needed to ensure that OAC continues it programs and services for those affected by the obesity epidemic.
Join us immediately following to enjoy Tommy Gallagher Band live in concert! Food and drinks will be provided.
