Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC) is holding its annual 5k Walk/Run and Health Expo on Saturday, May 4 at 400 N. Pepper Ave. in Colton. The Walk/Run is a community outreach event designed to raise interest in regular physical exercise. Did you know nearly 70 percent of adults in our county struggle with weight? It is time to lace up those sneakers and step into action! Check out all the fun in the video here!

ARMC conducts many activities to improve the health of our community including a weekly Farmers Market held on Wednesdays in front of the hospital, a wellness app that encourages physical and mental health as well as healthy food offerings in our hospital cafeteria. A sedentary lifestyle is a risk factor for many health problems. Since overweight children are more likely to become overweight or obese adults, encouraging a healthy body weight can have positive impacts on health.
