Spring Branch Community Health Center (“SBCHC”) is dedicated to creating opportunities for families to prioritize their health and have fun. SBCHC’s Walk for Wellness is organized in partnership with local school districts, community organizations, social media groups, and health providers. This year’s event will be back in-person and we are working with local school districts to involve families with children of all ages. The Walk for Wellness will challenge participants to engage with local social service providers and health care providers. Local supporters will offer health tips and educational activities during the event. We are asking all sponsors and participants to enjoy the fresh air and get some exercise. SBCHC aims to promote proper nutrition, exercise and the value of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The event will focus on providing fun, education, and activity for local low-income families. The goal is to raise awareness and educate the public about how chronic health issues can be avoided through proper nutrition and regular exercise. Chronic disease disproportionately affects those in West Houston who lack the financial resources to access medical services. Fortunately, these illnesses are the most preventable of all health problems! Events like the Annual Walk for Wellness help participants access free health education information that can lead to healthy behavioral changes. Our participants will walk the track for one mile. The fastest walkers will receive a grand prize and social media recognition after the event.
