Generations Community Wellness “Great Sugar Dump 5K”
September 25, 2012
Join us at the Great Sugar Dump 5K on Sunday, September 30, 2012 at the Cisco Campus/Coyote Creek in Milpitas. The event is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
This event is a combination community health event and timed 5K run/walk race. As an awareness campaign, Generations is educating the community about the link between sugar consumption and obesity, with a variety of family oriented activities highlighting the health benefits of physical activity and fruit, vegetables, and water. The Santa Clara County Public Health is a co-sponsor of the event and will have an informational table with a variety of health-related resources.
Educate yourself about the obesity epidemic during your run, with health tips and information printed along the route. Stop by our Public Health Dept table and bring your unwanted cans or bottles of sugary soda, or packaged sugary snacks, to dump at the Generations Junk Food Trade-in. In exchange, Generations Community Wellness will supply Great Sugar Dump 5K water bottles, pedometers, and t-shirts for all participants.
Runners begin the 5K on Cisco’s McCarthy campus in Milpitas and continue onto the Coyote Creek Trail for a flat and fast course featuring great views of the South Bay, finishing back on the Cisco campus.
Post-race festivities include the award ceremony recognizing the event’s Sugar Dump Champion with the 5K winners. Racers and their families will enjoy healthy recovery meal options from Revolution Foods, complimentary post-race massage provided by Dr. Kauffman of Thrive Milpitas, and Kaiser's onsite mobile health services.
