The start of the fun run.

The 2012 Bethel 5K Fun Run was a success. The Delta Tobacco Control Alliance (DTCA) hosted this event on Saturday June 2 to celebrate World No Tobacco Day which falls on May 31st of every year. It is an event that promotes healthy living by spreading awareness on the harms of tobacco and encouraging people to be tobacco free.

Over 40 participants ran and walked the beautiful course along the river. Special thanks go to the Teens Acting Against Violence (TAAV) for creating signs and posters for the event and to Bethel Parks and Recreations for the gifts they donated to all the runners. For more information on how to join or support the DTCA, contact the Tobacco Prevention & Research Department, YKHC @ 543-6312
