If the idea of being active with people who are passionate about nurturing your complete well-being sounds appealing to you, then you need to check out the annual Keep Austin Well 5K Run/Walk! The run will be held on Saturday, September 1 at Arbor Trails.
The purpose of the Keep Austin Well 5K is to promote wellness for both its participants and the Austin community. Proceeds from the run benefit a different part of the community every year that may need assistance. This year, the organizations chosen are Austin Pets Alive! and CASA of Travis County.
Keep Austin Well is not only a run but also a non-profit organization created by Total Wellness Austin, an establishment whose mission is to promote both a healthy mind and body. They do this by providing a combination of services tailored to each individual. If you want to work on your physical strength and fitness, the personal trainers there provide boot camp services every day of the week and the yoga instructors will schedule private sessions with you. If you want to soothe your body, the certified massage and acupuncture services will help relieve its tensions. If you want health care for body pains without having to resort to drugs or invasive surgery, the chiropractor will help you with that. In addition to all of these services, Total Wellness Austin also provides nutritional and mental counseling sessions. Total Wellness Austin makes a point to take care of you completely.
And to further their mission for all-around healthfulness, Total Wellness Austin is inviting you to come run or walk with them at their Keep Austin Well 5K. Not only will you be active with others who want to further their own health while giving back to the community, you’ll also be enjoying really nice shopping scenery and mother nature at Arbor Trails. There are many restaurants in the area as well, so if you get hungry after the walk try something healthy at Whole Foods, Smoothie King, or My Fit Foods.
Come on out and enjoy the beautiful views and even buy a light, healthy meal afterwards if you choose! Registration for the Keep Austin Well 5K Run/Walk is currently open to all family members online and is $18 per participant and includes a t-shirt.
