Second Annual Spring into Fitness 5K Race/Walk

Released: 3/7/2013

Do you have the grit to be fit? Join Kaleida Health for the second annual Spring into Fitness 5K race on Saturday, April 27, 2013. This event celebrates wellness and healthy living, encouraging Kaleida Health employees and the Western New York community to stay active.

If you are not a runner, you can still participate in the newly-added 2.5K walk. As a family-oriented event, strollers and walkers are always welcome.

Two healthcare trophies will be awarded at this year's event. One award will be offered to the Kaleida Health facility that has the highest percentage of employee finishers. The second award will be given to the individual department that has the highest ratio of race participants to staff members.

This year's race route will include a full tour of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. At the end of the race, runners and friends will be invited to enjoy food and drink at the post race party.

The first 150 employees to pre-register for the event online will receive $10 off their registration fee. Use the code "KALEIDAEMP150" to receive the discount.

All net proceeds are donated to the Kaleida Health Foundation for future wellness and health events.
