About This Activity

Support the Diabetes Health and Wellness Institute (DHWI) by fundraising or registering to walk or run in the 2014 Healthy Harvest Fun Walk/5K Run and Diabetes Expo to continue the DHWI's efforts to serve the community in southern Dallas!

For the first time, we have team fundraising available to help support medical care, research and wellness programming at the DHWI. Invite your family, friends or co-workers to form a team and raise funds that will change lives in southern Dallas. Team members may run or walk in the event by paying the registration fee. Those who register to walk or run may pick up a T-shirt at the event finish line. Check out the Team Fundraising website for more information and tips for getting donations.  

The Healthy Harvest Fun Walk & 5K Run raises funds and awareness for the programs of the DHWI, a collaboration between Baylor Health Care System and the City of Dallas, to provide access to quality health care and disease prevention services to southern Dallas. Residents in surrounding ZIP codes are three-times more likely to die from diabetes compared to those living in Dallas. Prior to the DHWI's opening, the area lacked services that are essential to living healthy, such as access to doctors' offices or hospitals, healthy food options and grocery stores, exercise programs, and affordable transportation. The mission of the DHWI is to improve the care of people with diabetes by creating a new care model focused on health care, education and research. It is Southern Dallas' first and only facility addressing health and wellness needs related to diabetes. Staffed by a team including a physician, nurses, care coordinators and diabetes education specialists, the DHWI offers a simple yet innovative approach to combating diabetes and has woven itself into the culture of this community to impact societal change.
