On June 9, nearly 200 patients and their invited guests gathered at Municipal Park to participate in St. Luke’s Fit for the Road Reunion. The free event is an invitation-only walk along the Boise River and healthy picnic for patients who have undergone or may be continuing treatment through St. Luke’s Heart, Joint Replacement, St. Luke’s Bariatric Clinics and/or St. Luke’s MSTI.
“Stories were shared, friends were made, and goals were set,” said Heather Hill, FitOne director. “This event provides a unique opportunity to emphasize how physical activity plays such an important role in any treatment or recovery plan, and the energy and enthusiasm that night was a testament to the value of this type of support and camaraderie.”
Registration is now open for the FitOne Family 5K Run Walk & Stroll, 10K and Half Marathon, held on Saturday, Sept. 24 in Boise. Proceeds from FitOne benefit St. Luke’s Children’s. This family-friendly event is also easy on the budget; kids 12 and under are free with a paid adult. Visit FitOne at FitOneBoise.org to learn more or to register online.
