4th Annual Move for Life Spring Kick-off draws over 400 Community Residents!

Saturday, April 5, 2014 over 400 families, students, community members showed up at the 4th Anuual Move for Life! event in Humboldt Park to ride their bikes, dance, learn to make healthy meals and snacks, play basketball, watch live Puerto Rican bomba, plena, belly dancing and even check their heart health. These were just some of the activities and performances at this fun filled event in celebration of the arrival of spring and promotion of getting out and becoming more physically active.

Whether it’s walking, jogging, cycling, dance-aerobics, Zumba, basketball, or soccer the idea is to get people moving. To motivate our community, Move for Life! brought together 25 community based organizations, agencies, and individuals to interactively showcase their various free or low cost physical activity programs available to everyone in the community throughout the year. Thank you to all of the providers who enjoyed this beautiful warm day in Humboldt park promoting a more physically active and healthy lifestyle and providing information on programming that everyone can participate for free or at an affordable cost.

The Muevete program is housed at The Greater Humboldt Community Diabetes Empowerment Center at 2753 W. Division St and provides absolutely FREE physical activities Monday through Saturday for adults 18 years and older and all fitness levels
