The 3rd Annual West Louisville Fun Run & Health Fair was held Saturday, September 5, 2015. The annual event, held at the beautiful and historic Shawnee Park, drew over 100 participants from around the city. WLKY's Anna-Lysa Gayle served as Mistress of Ceremonies for the event filled with music, fun, and, of course, running. The health fair included booths set up for screenings like blood pressure and BMI. Special thanks to our event's Title Sponsor, Allen Financial Management Group.
The Fun Run's Chair, Michael Branch, had this to say: "We at Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. are seeking to uplift the West Louisville community by targeting one of the most crucial stepping stones to well-being and empowerment, which is health and fitness. Many of us are from the area and we saw the need for a healthy lifestyle push in an area like West Louisville which is full of food deserts and conspicuously devoid of fitness amenities like health clubs and gyms. Running/walking is a fundamental human movement, and also one of the most basic exercises available. One that doesn't take any extra equipment to begin participating in".
This year's event will primarily benefit an Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Local and National Partner, The March of Dimes, as well as the Alpha Lambda Education Foundation. The March of Dimes goal is to improve the health of babies and give every baby a fighting chance while the Education Foundation is a 501 c 3 non-profit organized for charitable and educational purposes.
