Miami Valley Hospital Wellness 5k/10k
The Miami Valley Hospital Medical Staff Wellness Committee is pleased to announce its first wellness run. Formed in 2017, the committee is dedicated to improving the physical and mental health of staff and their quality of life. Proceeds from the event will support wellness initiatives through a fund at Miami Valley Hospital Foundation.
On a day-to-day basis, healthcare workers lead busy and stressful lives and figuring out how to find a balance between their jobs and personal lives can be difficult. That imbalance can lead to burnout. In order to combat burnout, the committee is working to implement new programs, events and ideas to promote a culture of wellness throughout Premier Health.
This inaugural race will take place April 21 at Island MetroPark beginning at 8:30 a.m. The event will feature 5k and 10k courses that run along the scenic Stillwater River.
At 9:30 a.m. a free kids 1 mile fun run through the park will also be held.
Premier Health employees can earn 50 Premier Healthy Living points for participation in the 5k and 100 points for participation in the 10k. Participation is open to all Premier Health staff members, as well as the general public.
