BWC “Goes Green” for Annual Spring Into Health ‘Healthraiser’ Run

SOUTHPORT—Brunswick Wellness Coalition (BWC) is preparing for its annual Spring Into Health 5K/1m Run on Saturday, March 16. Participants can run, walk, stroll, or roll along the route to raise awareness about living healthy lifestyles. All ages, skill levels, and abilities are encouraged to participate. In addition to age category medals, a Spunky Team Award will be presented to the team that harnesses creativity and energy. Dr. Leigh Lane, the Coalition’s Executive Director said “This year pairing with St. Patrick’s Day weekend, we expect to see a lot of green, creative attire. We will also have a ‘lucky leap’ to see who has the longest, most creative leap.” If an individual or organization cannot participate but wants to contribute, the run has donation options that will be used with proceeds to offer health screenings and wellness education throughout the county.

As a founding member of BWC and a supporter of community health initiatives, Dosher Memorial Hospital will host the 2024 Spring Into Health 5k/1m Run as a continued demonstration to quality community health involvement. The hospital will serve as the starting and finishing line for the run. Lane said “Dosher has not only been a committed member of BWC since its inception but continues to serve as a health champion for the community.”
