Destination Health Walk/Run/Learn is an annual fun-filled community event designed to promote healthy lifestyles. The theme for 2017 is the Kwanzaa principle of Umoja (Unity). Our multigenerational community approach brings youth, parents, grandparents and great grandparents together to participate in fun and healthy activities everyone can enjoy. Together, we encourage and support healthy eating, healthy minds and healthy bodies!

Destination Health is scheduled for Saturday, July 22, 2017 in beautiful Denver City Park at the Pavilion and includes a non-competitive 5K walk or run, a Kids’ Dash, a 1-mile shortcut for participants interested in a more leisurely route and a health expo (Learn) featuring a wide range of health related information and resources.

There will be entertainment featuring Cleo Parker Robinson Dance, yoga, line dancing, a children’s health and safety zone and more. In partnership with Im’Unique we will also convene a Community Conversation – Breaking Barriers/Breaking Bread.  We hope that we can count on your support and participation in this 7th Annual Event!

Participants in the walk/run receive a Destination Health t-shirt and are invited to visit our Health Education Expo. FORM A TEAM and Pledge your support. You can help support the work of the Center for African American Health by forming a team with your friends, co-workers and family and then take the challenge to create a fundraising page.

The Center for African American Health is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of the African-American community. The Center partners with a wide variety of health-education, health-delivery and community organizations to develop and provide culturally appropriate disease prevention and disease management programs to thousands each year.
