Walking the walk – help yourself while supporting great causes!

The vision of the Libin Institute highlights cardiovascular wellness, health care, research and education.  While we oft speak directly to health care, research and education, the area of wellness many times does not get the attention it deserves.  Wellness, which encompasses actualizing health promotion disease prevention, is a critical success factor at the population level, and that is why the Institute is encouraging all, starting with our own Members, Staff and Trainees, and their families, to ‘walk the walk‘.

Here are a few walks/runs that the Institute is either directly involved with or is supporting.  ALL are encouraged to participate!

Mother’s Day Run & Walk (5K, 10K) – Sunday May 13 at Chinook Centre

Calgary Marathon (5K, 10K, 1/2M, M) – Sunday May 27 at Stampede Park

  • Registration -$40 to $105
  • Funds raised support – Various (select from list including HSF)

World Partnership Walk – Sunday June 10 at Prince’s Island Park

Energizer Night Race (5K, 10K) – Saturday August 18 at North Glenmore Park

Remember – take lots of pictures for sharing.  Let’s set an example and walk the walk to better health, while supporting some great causes!
