2015 Resolve for a Better SA 5K

By Jaime Brunner, JLSA Resolve for a Better SA 5K Outreach Coordinator

The 3rd Annual Junior League of San Antonio Resolve for a Better SA 5K Polar Bear Dash is on January 31, 2015 at 9:00am, at its new location at the San Antonio Museum of Art! Join us to help the Junior League of San Antonio “Freeze” in the New Year! The Junior League’s signature project is Let’s Go San Antonio, which promotes healthy living for San Antonio youth.  Please bring your kids to join us for the Kids’ Cub Crawl (Half K) so we can get San Antonio’s youth off to the right start in the New Year. All proceeds from the race goes to help Junior League of San Antonio’s numerous community partners.

Why do we do a 5K? Our signature effort, known as Let's Go San Antonio, is aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle among San Antonio youth by teaching children how to make healthy food choices and become physically active.  The 5K further promotes our League-wide goal of promoting wellness by getting our members and friends physically active and setting an example of health and wellness.
Where exactly is the race? I don’t want to get lost on the way there! The race will start at the San Antonio Museum of Art (200 West Jones Avenue, San Antonio, Texas 78215). Bonus: there’s free parking on-site (look for happy JLSA volunteers pointing out the lots!). Registered racers will also be granted FREE admission to the museum for the day (a $10 added value).
