Mark your calendars for BWC’s Spring Into Health 5K or 1M COLOR run/walk on Saturday, April 4th, 2020. You’ve heard the saying “eat the rainbow,” well why not BE the rainbow? Yes, still keep eating a variety of fruits and veggies year round but join us to get blasted with a variety of colors. Don’t worry, you can opt-out of getting colorful if you’re more of a grey-scale fan.

Let’s Spring Into Health!
Simply walking every day for 30-60 minutes along with eating a predominately plant-based diet can have tremendous health benefits like more energy, improved mood and more consistent sleep patterns, better balance and coordination skills, stronger bones and muscles and better weight control. Choosing a healthier lifestyle can also reduce your risk of developing a chronic disease like diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and cancer; and, if you have a chronic disease, adopting such a lifestyle can help you manage the condition and improve your quality of life. Bottom line, whoever you are and whatever your age, each and every one of us should be more responsible for our health so let’s make that commitment today – do it for the health of it.
