Get Going Oregon!
Get Going Oregon! hopes to motivate Oregonians to walk, run, bicycle, swim (or whatever physical activity you choose) at least 30 minutes a day for 30 days in order to create a new and healthy habit! Get Going Oregon! will raise awareness and funds to benefit the Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center at Oregon Health & Science University. Rhonda Shelby gives us a tour of the Health Center.
Get Going Oregon! kicks off Saturday October 1, 2011 with a health fair and 5k walk at OHSU’s South Waterfront campus. GGO! Health fair will offer free health screenings, live band and health oriented vendors and activities. The excitement continues throughout October with a month-long activity challenge, culminating, in conjunction with the World Diabetes Day events in downtown Portland.
