2020 New Year’s resolution No. 1: Live a healthier lifestyle. We can help with that.
This is the year you can turn things around. This is the year to strive for a better lifestyle. So, here’s your opportunity to start the year off on the right foot.
The Seeds of Hope 5K and 1K Run/Walk for Hope Jan. 11 is the perfect way to start the year and get moving in a healthy direction. Not into making resolutions?
Well, here are six reasons for you to lace up your shoes and join us:
- Wonderful workout. Physical movement is good for you. No matter what level of intensity you can do comfortably, the benefits of working your muscles far outweigh being sedentary. Walking can raise your heart rate, lower your blood pressure and reduce stress.
- Everyone can participate. This is a kid-and-pet friendly event for everyone from birth to 100. Whether you push a stroller or a walker, everyone can come out to walk or run. And with the option of a 1K or 5K, there really isn’t a reason to stay home.
- Get going and stay going. Maybe you promised this to yourself before, but… this is the year it’s going to be different. This is the year you can turn things around. This is the year to strive for a better lifestyle. So, here’s your opportunity to start the year off on the right foot.
- Convenient. Our 9 a.m. start time doesn’t tie up your day. With a 10-minute warm up, and allowing 45 minutes for the walk, you can finish and be on your way home with a medal and your race T-shirt before your neighbor finishes a second cup of coffee. (Better yet, bring that neighbor along).
- Swag. Every pre-registered runner brings home a medal, T-shirt and a bag full of goodies.
- Help others, help yourself. When you start the new year improving your health by participating in our Run for Hope, you partner with us to provide opportunities for others to also improve their lives through our varied programs.
Here’s what your race registration/donation supports:
Hot Lunch for the hungry provides hot meals to the less fortunate six days a week. Through the generosity of our community, we also are able to provide emergency food boxes, hygiene bags and a clothing closet to our participants.
Afterschool Power Hour provides one-on-one afterschool homework help for kids in kindergarten through eighth grade.
Angeles de Esperanza provides senior adults a socialization environment to combat living in isolation. Weekly activities, which include exercise, games, Bible study and sewing/cooking, are all designed to boost the mind, body and soul.
Community Garden provides healthy organic food choices for families and children in our other programs. The opportunity to sow, care for, cultivate and eat fresh vegetables expands the knowledge of where food comes from and its nutritional value.
