On June 16, HealthPoint Bothell is holding their seventh annual family fun run/walk, “Heroes for Health” 5K event.

The run begins at 10 a.m. with fun for kids and families starting at 9 a.m. at 10414 Beardslee Boulevard, next to the Post Office. Attendees can get their picture taken with Blitz from the Seattle Seahawks and grab their favorite superhero costume and walk, run, trot, or skate with their friends and family. Registration is $30 for kids, veterans, HealthPoint patients and Apple Health families are free to join the fun.

This year HealthPoint is bringing back the Super Hero themed costume contest, so attendees should dress up as their favorite hero to help celebrate the “Heroes for Health” theme.

HealthPoint will award prizes for best costumes and best times for the run. There will also be fun games and activities for kids, vendor booths with giveaways, and snacks. Attendees can stop by to learn about HealthPoint’s services including primary medical care, dental care, behavioral health, pharmacy, naturopathic care, acupuncture, nutrition counseling, and more.

HealthPoint, a non-profit network of health centers, sponsors Heroes for Health to celebrate communities and give families a way to get active together in the name of health.

To register or volunteer for the event, locals can go to www.healthpointfamily5k.org.
