The Healthy Start 5K Run welcomes both runners and walkers. The purpose of this charitable event is to raise awareness for the importance of living a healthy, fit and smart lifestyle. In addition to the run/walk, healthcare professionals will be in attendance to answer questions and provide insightful educational resources.
We encourage the Northeast Florida community and the city of Jacksonville especially, to come out to enjoy a nice run or walk to kick the new year off to a healthy start! We will have fun activities for the kids and family as we all work together to promote a healthy lifestyle.
A portion of these proceeds from this event will support the American Diabetes Associationand the Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation of Jacksonville.
The American Diabetes Association leads the fight against diabetes and fights for those affected by diabetes. They fund research to prevent, cure, and manage diabetes; deliver services to hundreds of communities; and educate and inform the community about diabetes.
The Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation-Jacksonville is a 501(c)3 non-profit organizations that has granted over $300,000 to students pursuing post-secondary and graduate degrees through its scholarship program. Additionally, the Foundation also continues to support the young men of Jacksonville through its Guide Right Leadership & Development Program.
Your contributions will help us support the mission to eventually find a cure as well as help those who suffer on a daily basis. Please consider forming a team of runners/walkers to participate in this worthwhile cause.
