¡MUEVETE, SAN ANTO!
by Kaycie Tyler
¡Muevete, San Anto! is a FREE wellness program developed by San Anto Cultural Arts as a way to engage the community in the upcoming Huevos Rancheros Walk-Run-Ride. Scheduled for October 4, 2014, the Walk-Run-Ride will precede the 17th annual Huevos Rancheros Gala, San Anto’s primary fundraiser. Consistent of a 1 mile family walk, a 5K race, and a 5 mile bike ride, the Huevos Rancheros Walk-Run-Ride will offer a one-of-a-kind opportunity to take a journey through the streets of the Westside. The route takes participants past up to 15 San Anto murals. The event will also incorporate several fun contests along the course. Registration is available at www.iaapweb.com and www.sannto.org. All Run and Ride participants will receive FREE entry into the Gala as well! The Walk-Run-Ride begins at 8 am and the Gala begins at 9 am.
In order to build up to participating in the Huevos Rancheros Walk-Run-Ride, we, at San Anto, developed ¡Muevete, San Anto! The program features fitness activities as well as nutrition and diabetes classes. It is FREE of charge and all are welcome to participate.
We meet at San Anto - 2120 El Paso - every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:15 pm to 6:00 pm. Participants are encouraged to bring their own weights, yoga mats, and/or resistance bands if they have them. No equipment is necessary, though! All activities can be modified for any fitness level. There will be incentives for participating (including free entry into the Walk-Run-Ride)!! We are working to expand the program beyond the currently scheduled two days and volunteers with fitness or nutrition backgrounds are greatly appreciated. We recently added a Wednesday Walking/Running Group and will continue to add activities. Call Kaycie Tyler at 210.226.7466 for more information.
