Weekend Event a Celebration of Community, Wellness, and Women

By Dr. David C. Pate, News and Community
September 24, 2012

Thousands of women ran, walked, and rolled down Capitol Boulevard in Boise on Saturday as part of the 20th annual St. Luke's Women's Fitness Celebration. The Celebration is the largest women’s 5k walk/run in the United States, and is a perfect fit with St. Luke's mission of promoting the health of people in all the communities we serve. As in years past, many women came to Boise from outside the state, and even outside the country, to participate.

I was able to take in the scene from an observation platform, and was thrilled to see the turnout and all the enthusiasm. 

I can't wait for next year's Celebration! Click here for more pictures. And to learn more, see the Celebration's website.
