Phoenix 5Ks This Fall

By |September 20th, 2017|Categories: Physical Activity|Tags: , , , , |Comments Off on Phoenix 5Ks This Fall

Here at the Halle Heart Children’s Museum, we educate kids on three important practices to keep their hearts healthy:

  • Never smoke
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Get plenty of exercise!

We may mostly be teaching kids about these crucial principles, but they apply to adults, too! Of these three activities that keep up our cardiovascular health, getting daily exercise may be the biggest challenge for us adults. Thirty minutes a day, five days a week is a proven rule of thumb for lowering blood pressure and risk of heart attack or stroke. But unlike kids, who typically have some physical activity built into their day through P.E. and recess, grown-ups have to work a bit harder to make it happen.

With the weather getting ready to cool down, fall is a great time to get outside for some of those 150 minutes per week of moderate activity recommended by the American Heart Association. What about challenging yourself to run a 5k? Even if you’ve never been a runner, there are numerous “couch to 5k” programs available online that offer a clear-cut path from non-runner to race finisher. Scheduling an event to look forward to is a great motivator for working in some cardio on a regular basis.

There’s no shortage of options for 5k races coming up in the Valley this fall! With tons of fun choices–from goofy themed runs to races that benefit a worthy cause–there’s a 5k for everyone. Here are ten upcoming 5ks around town to get you excited about hitting the pavement for your heart.

1. T-Rex Run – September 23rd

Member Appreciation Paint Night

image001 Member Appreciation Paint Night

We LOVE our members at the Halle Heart Children’s Museum! The wonderful folks who visit again and again are what make our museum tick. As a member of the HHCM, you help children learn important principles for a lifetime of heart health in a stimulating, interactive environment. We can’t thank you enough for being a part of all we do!

As a gesture of appreciation, we’re excited to offer a fun-filled evening event for members only!

On Thursday, September 28th, join us in the museum’s colorful Follow Your Heart exhibit–also known as “the big heart”–for a Paint Night. Led by the talented instructors of Painting with Canvas, we’ll learn to paint works of art step by step (so don’t worry if you’re not a natural artist). Each member will have the option to paint a tree with sunset background (pictured above), or a piece of a puzzle picturing our mascot, Lub Dub, to be displayed in the museum. While the creative juices are flowing, we’ll serve a variety of hors d’oeuvres and nonalcoholic beverages. Kids are invited, too! A kid-friendly movie and craft will entertain the little ones while parents are painting.

If you’re not a member of the HHCM yet, there’s no better time to join! During the month of September, take advantage of our “Sept-Member” special of $5 off any membership. Join today in person or online using the discount SEPT-MEMBER to access all the benefits of membership, from free admission to reduced rates on programming to exclusive events like this one. Once you’ve purchased a membership–or if you already have one–head over here by September 18th to secure your spot for the Paint Night.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to our museum members! We can’t wait to see you and your works of (he)art!
