Run For Your Life
Run for Your Life (RFYL) is an annual charity 5k Fun Run/Walk & Health Fair organized entirely by the medical students at PNWU. The first annual event was held in 2011 on PNWU’s campus in Terrace Heights. RFYL has since moved to downtown Yakima to showcase the great city that has helped build PNWU.
As future physicians, students aim to bring the community together to promote healthy lifestyles. This event has become a way for PNWU students to contribute to the greater Yakima area by providing a family friendly, healthy, and safe activity. Additionally, all funds are donated to a local organizations that support the health and well-being of our community.
The concurrent Health Fair is well attended by community members and is composed of booths from PNWU student clubs, as well as local health organizations. Some of the topics covered include heart health, diabetes, smoking cessation, back pain, mental health, substance abuse, outdoor recreation, exercise, and sexual health.
