Runners, families, friends and those from the Lexington community and beyond are invited to come participate in the 5th Annual Hastings Harvest 5K Run/walk. This sanctioned event will be chip-timed and offer a challenging course for the elite and novice runner. Taking off from the Hayden lower field on Worthen Road, both runners and walkers will enjoy at scenic run through the local community and ending back at the field for a post-race celebration with great food, fun music and kids’ fun. If you’re not 5K ready, don’t worry, join the group and walk our 1.5 mile loop. Grab your friends, challenge your coworkers and encourage your kids to “Get Up and Get Moving!” Last year, our runner participation far exceeded our original expectations with more than 330 runner’s registered and more than 400 people in attendance. Be a part of the Maria Hastings Elementary school’s ongoing commitment to keeping health and fitness in the forefront for their students and staff. <<
Thank you for raising awareness about the need for foster parents in Massachusetts. As an organization that also provides Intensive Foster Care, The Home for Little Wanderers has found that many people are unaware of the different types of foster care. We encourage anyone who is interested to learn more. Every child deserves a safe and loving home.
This topic has occupied my mind for years! Thank you for starting a movement that parents so desperately need! It is difficult for young parents to NOT get caught up in the overscheduled lifestyle. No well-meaning parent wants their child to miss any opportunity for healthy enrichment, but too much is counterproductive! Although my children are teenagers now, I would have LOVED to hear your words of wisdom when my family craved downtime!
Dr. Newberger - Thank you for giving the HPV vaccine visibility in your community. We are very passionate about educating people regarding this deadly virus. "This is one of the epidemics of the 21st century," says Otis Brawley, chief medical officer at the American Cancer Society.
On June 1, 2008 our 23 yr. old daughter Kristen died after a courageous fight against HPV caused cervical cancer. The vaccine would have led to a different outcome for Kristen.
Kristen’s cancer battle led to the book, “Love, Kristen,” which tells about her experience. While doing research for the book, we learned how little women know about HPV and its tie to cervical cancer; the availability and importance of HPV testing and vaccines and Pap screening tests. This fact led to the founding of the Kristen Forbes EVE Foundation and the creation of the Cervical Cancer-Free Indiana Initiative (CCFIN).
The mission of the Kristen Forbes EVE Foundation (www.kristeneve.org) is to eliminate cervical cancer and significantly reduce HPV infection levels. The Foundation is based in Noblesville, IN.
People need to understand that "the HPV vaccination is about cancer....not sex."
Once again, many thanks for writing about HPV.
