6th Annual Solana Beach Sunset 5K
The sixth annual Solana Beach Sunset 5K Fun Run/Walk and Wellness Expo drew more than 500 runners, walkers, teams, and sponsors to Fletcher Cove Park for a day of fun activities for all ages, including stretching with Stretch Lab, food from Urban Remedy, healthy tips from Aetna and Fitwall, kids zone games with the Skinny Gene Project, superhero costume contest, live music, and more. The event, hosted by Champions for Health, raised over $50,000 benefiting community wellness and diabetes prevention programs.
Champions for Health’s community wellness programs address preventable and chronic diseases through immunizations, screenings, the Live Well San Diego Speaker’s Bureau, and diabetes prevention education including personalized coaching, weekly group meetings, physical activities, and nutritional counseling. This year alone, over 500 volunteer physicians and health care professionals provided 25,000 blood pressure screenings at 200 locations, more than 100 healthy living presentations, and 4,200 free vaccinations to people in need.
