Get Out and Move Event

By Chris Picciuolo

On April 8, Salt River Public Health put together Get Out and Move, an event held at the Salt River Community Building to motivate Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community members to move around and start thinking about healthy choices as the weather changes from cool to warm.

The event began with a walk/run down Longmore Road. Walkers and runners who crossed the finish line could catch their breath and then restore their energy with healthy food items and water in the shade provided at information booths set up by Diabetes Prevention Services, Environmental Health, Injury Prevention, Public Health Nursing, and the Women Infants and Children (WIC) Program.

Inside the Community Building, exercise classes included yoga, Zumba and Pound.

During the event, prizes were given away to participants in a raffle.
