Saturday January 7, 2017 marked the start of the Jacksonville Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Inc’s 5th Annual Healthy Start 5K .
This year, the event partnered with the American Diabetes Association in promoting healthy lifestyle options for preventing and managing Diabetes. It was a family affair with over 250 participants who braved the cold weather to promote their own health as well as set an example for the community. Diabetes is a preventable disease, which is also manageable for the individuals who have the chronic illness already.
Exercise and proper diet are key factors in promoting a healthy lifestyle, so we encourage you to get up, move, and make smart food choices with the intent of living healthy.
