Living a Healthy Lifestyle,
Successfully raising over $15,000 for the 2nd Annual Sickle Cell Awareness 5K Walk or Run held on
September 14, 2013 at Brandywine Park, was truly awe inspiring. Seeing people in my community of all colors, shapes-sizes and ages walking, running will help increase their overall health and well-being. African-Americans are at higher risk of developing Diabetes, Hypertension and Heart Disease than Caucasians as well as Obesity. Continuing to make exercise and healthy eating habits apart of your lifestyle takes discipline and commitment. But there rewards are great! Continue to take your family to the park on weekends. Even if it’s just for 30 minutes, Is Definitely a step in the right direction.
All the best,
