Couch Potato to 5k 2014

Couch Potato to 5k 2014

This year’s Couch Potato to 5k program wrapped up on July 16. Over the last 16 weeks, more than 200 community members participated.

“I'm very pleased with my results. I lost 12 pounds from this time last year,” said one participant. “I'm going off one medication completely, and cutting another in half as a result of couch to 5K training. Thanks so much for the encouragement!”

The Community Health Needs Assessment we completed identified adult and childhood obesity as one of the health needs in our community. This is one reason why the Couch Potato to 5k program is so important to the vitality of our community.

Heartland Health strives to make St. Joseph and the surrounding area the healthiest place in America to live a healthy and productive life. The Couch Potato to 5k is one of our programs that helps achieve this goal.
