Health and wellness involves exercise and enrichment of one’s mind, body, and soul. There are multiple and constructive ways to do in order to enhance one’s overall health. And thanks to the efforts of Ladies in Stride, their upcoming run/walk provides another way to do so, especially as it relates to women’s health and wellness areas of concern.
With a focus on applying a holistic approach of helping ladies enjoy a healthy and balanced lifestyle, their upcoming event provides a tier of programming that aligns with its nurturing of positive growth and development. Via the lenses of physical, spiritual, mental, emotional, financial, and social growth, their “Mind, Body, and Soul” program provides a great growth opportunity for its current members along with the larger community.
“We are providing a fun run/walk for all, along with other services”, notes Genice Hanchett from our discussion on Saturday. She is one of the key founding members of the organization, which has chapters locally and in other parts of the country.
Taking place on Saturday, April 16, 2016 at Lenora Park (in Snellville), the 9am start time for the program is more than just having those in attendance partake of physical activity. Through the direction of Dr. Donald Hanchett, as well as a panel of metro-area physicians and nurses, free health screenings are conducted on-site.
The event is family friendly. Complete with music and family-centered activities combined with the health programming, it provides a great way for multiple levels and audiences of awareness and immersion. Likewise, for all participating in the fun run/walk portion, fruit and water are provided to keep participants as well hydrated as possible.
As an additional tier of community support, the organization is accepting donations to not only support their ongoing work, but that of the American Heart and Stroke Association. Doing so allows for increasing programming focused on public awareness of the importance of how stress plays a factor in the aforementioned health concerns, along with ways to better decrease one’s stress levels and the corresponding decrease in risk of chronic illness. For additional information for the upcoming event, readers are encouraged to contact them via phone (at 567-523-9567) or email (email@example.com).
Since their establishment in September of 2011, the faith-based organization provides outreach for multiple audiences for women, including those starting as young as 13. Healthy living is at the core of what they do, and through their lineup, they are able to help everyone “keep it moving”.
On April 16, 2016, walk, run, and stride.
