Get Healthy Alexandria! Events

The Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria has partnered with Mayor Euille to raise community awareness about how to be active and eat healthy. As part of this effort, we’re also trying to raise residents’ awareness of community health opportunities.  The Mayor’s “Get Healthy Alexandria!” Leadership Team is a diverse group of community organizations, businesses, and community residents who are leading this effort.

As part of this effort, we will be hosting yearly events to encourage the community to be active together and learn more about healthy eating and active living.  The "Get Healthy Alexandria!" Leadership Team has four events planned in the next year.

  • Olde Town Dogge Walke/Walk a Hound, Lose a Pound! Improve the lives of homeless animals and humans through fitness and physical activity.  Sunday, September 25th, 2011 from 9 – 11 a.m. This is the perfect event for pet lovers of all kinds!  Bring your dog, bring your cat, or walk in honor of a favorite animal friend.  Children walk for free!
