Family health and wellness is a combination of physical health, financial security and mental stability. It is difficult to turn on a television or computer without being exposed to some type of health and wellness offering quoting the grim statistics on the plight of Americans today and in the future. While information about health and wellness are prominent we find that many of the programs, education and information systems are hard to access in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV).

The Army National Guard wants to support family health and wellness in the Rio Grande Valley. The 3/141 Infantry, headquartered in Weslaco, Texas, is home to hundreds of soldiers and their families who need exposure to the many opportunities available to improve and support their health and wellness. As a bold step to show our relentless support we are proposing the “Run with Soldiers 5K Fun Run & Family Wellness Fair”.
