The 5K Challenge is a 10-week program to get you moving toward better health and fitness. The program is designed to prepare you to walk or run a 5K at the Henry Ford Allegiance Race to Health on Saturday, September 21. To keep participants motivated, there will be sessions on fitness and healthy eating, weekly health tips, and special speakers. Best-selling author Joe Piscatella, who designs and facilitates community wellness programs, will provide guidance during the program. The 5K Challenge will also have a Facebook group to facilitate sharing information and forming walking and running groups. Participants can use this supportive space to encourage each other along their health and fitness journeys and hold each other accountable. For added incentive, you’ll have the opportunity to earn a chance to win a variety of prizes, including a $1,000 Visa gift card (5 cards will be awarded).
