5K Walk & Free Health Fair

Howka brothers and sisters, as you know many of our tribal members suffer from heart issues and or have heart transplants... I thought maybe tribal members might want to participate in this event being held at the Oceanside Pier on April 26th. The Cardiovascular Disease Foundation is hosting a 5K Walk & Free Health Fair from 8:00am-2:00pm Cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure screenings will be offered at no charge.

Kids 12 and under walk free – many organizations such as Boys & Girls Clubs are forming walking teams to bring some attention to childhood obesity and the importance of exercise. I think it would be great to rally together a walking group to represent our reservations in support of this event.

This is a great cause and directly relates to many of the challenges we face with our own families. What better way to fight cardiovascular disease then to get the whole family out and walking toward health.
