Race for Control: 5K & Fitness Festival

Update: Walgreens has given us 200 free flu shots regardless of insurance! So dont forget to get your flu shot before you leave!

 

Get excited! 92.9FM and Majic 102.1FM have just confirmed that they will be at the event with free giveaways! 


The race and fitness festival will continue whether it rains or not! If it rains, the festival will be moved inside to the University Center where the flu shots are being given. We will have signs and people outside to show you the way! The rain might turn away some people but it only increases your chances of winning the raffles/giveaways! Remember, you are entered into the raffles for just showing up and registering for free at the Registration booth!

The University of Houston’s APhA-ASP Operation Diabetes Initiative has partnered with the American Diabetes Association (ADA) to host their first annual Race For Control: 5K & Fitness Festival. The event will be located at Lynn Eusan Park at the University of Houston on August 30, 2014 starting at 9:00 AM. It is free to register and all donations go to the American Diabetes Association! This 5k takes you around the University of Houston campus and features an all flat course for running/walking. The event is free of charge to all participants who wish to partake in the 5K race, Family Fun Mile or who wish to just attend the Fitness Festival. All proceeds are to benefit the ADA and our goal is to raise $2000 and have 300 people participate in the event. This event is a fundraiser for the American Diabetes Association. We will be accepting donations the day of the event as well as online on our race registration website. The Fitness Festival will include raffle prizes to raise money for the ADA, a host of vendors offering services that promote diabetes awareness and self-care (such as LA Fitness, In Fit Foods Vitamin Shoppe and more!), and free health screenings such as cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetic foot exams, periodontal disease counseling, BMI, and blood glucose screenings. Free flu shots for those without health insurance! Booths will also be set up that will counsel on diabetes management, answer diabetes medication questions and self-care/prevention techniques.


Are you looking for a fun event to go to?! Register for free online today on our website or on our facebook page! Create a team on the website and get all your friends to run/walk the race with you! Enjoy the Fitness Festival and it's free giveaways after you are done! If you don't want to participate in the 5K or the Family Fun Mile, then come out and enjoy the Fitness Festival! If you cannot attend, but wish to make a donation to the ADA then you can use our website to do that as well! We thank you for your support in helping us to make this event a success!!

WE’RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE. YOU CAN TOO. 

So many lives are touched by diabetes. Chances are your life is too. You can help make a difference in those lives. Join us or donate - either way, you can change lives.

We’re committed to walk and raise money in this inspirational event not because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because we personally know some of them, and want to do something about it. 

Here’s just one way funds raised by our team contributes to the work of the Association. Recently, the California Supreme Court ruled in the Association’s favor, allowing school personnel to volunteer and be trained to help children with insulin—allowing them to survive and thrive in school. This was a landmark win for people with diabetes.

 

If diabetes touches your life, then you belong with us. When we bring together dedicated team members and kind donors, the power we have as a group far outweighs what any of us could do alone.

To help support our efforts, please click to donate or join our team.

We are forever grateful for your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
