CIRI’s nonprofit health care affiliate, Southcentral Foundation, is hosting its 7th Annual Fun Run/Walk and Family Wellness Festival on Saturday, May 18. This free community event encourages Alaska Native and American Indian people to get moving, get healthy and get fit.
Alaska Native people are more than twice as likely to be diagnosed with diabetes. This event is held to promote diabetes and cancer prevention and to share information about Southcentral Foundation’s health and wellness programs. The Family Wellness Festival offers a variety of family games and activities such as a hula hoop contest, Target Your Heart, Yoga Kids and ZUMBA.
Registration for the 5K Fun Run/Walk begins at 9 a.m. and includes a free event t-shirt while supplies last. The Fun Run/Walk and Family Wellness Festival kicks off at 10 a.m. at the Southcentral Foundation Health Education and Wellness Center located at 4201 Tudor Centre Drive on the Alaska Native Health Campus.
