St Luke's Weight Management Center's Healthy Steps @ Any Size 5K

Bethlehem Township Municipal Park • 2900 Farmersville Rd BethlehemPA  18020 Organized by St Luke's Weight Management Center

About this event

Obesity is a rising concern in the United States. It is one of the leading causes in the escalating cost of healthcare. According to the CDC, as of 2022 41.9% of the US population have obesity and medical costs for those suffering from obesity is $1861 more than those of healthy weight individuals. The prevalence of obesity among 2-19 year olds is 19.7% or approximately 14.7 million children and adolescents. This is an 11.3% increase from 2015. When combined, obesity and overweightedness are the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States, close behind tobacco use. 

The St Luke’s Weight Management Center is taking an active role in making everyone aware of the importance of becoming active in the fight against obesity by hosting our 7th Annual Healthy Steps at Any Size 5K Walk.  Our hope is to encourage people of all sizes and shapes to participate in this activity, promote the importance of just moving, have some fun and exercise while doing it.
