Running of the Pink set for June 3

Running of the Pink set for June 3

Cancer is the leading cause of death of Stutsman County residents ages 45-84. Because of this, and because so many residents are affected by cancer, R.M. Stoudt hosts the annual Running of the Pink each year on the first Saturday in June which, this year, falls on June 3. All proceeds benefit the No Excuses Program and the local Women’s Way Chapter for breast and cervical cancer screenings as well as education and other needs. Jamestown Regional Medical Center hosts the No Excuses program every year, in conjunction with Central Valley Health. That day, women can come in for a basic screening as well as a mammogram, all in one quick visit. Plus, if women have any financial barriers, proceeds from Running of the Pink cover those needs. No Excuses helped 14 women at its last event in November. read...

Staying active in cold weather!

Staying active in cold weather!

McKenzie Kiefer, UJ student, Central Valley CHP coordinator North Dakota winters do not always provide temperatures that allow us to engage in physical activity outdoors, which leads many to a state of hibernation. About 53.8 % of North Dakotan’s report that they do not get the recommended amount of physical activity and cold North Dakota winters do not help motivate people to increase activity. Luckily walking is an activity that can be done just about anywhere and has been proven to be a great way to meet activity goals! read...

NYNY: Finding the Time

By Emily Hoffman, JRMC Exercise Physiologist “Those who do not have time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.” ~ Edward Stanley, Earl of Derby in 1800s Lack of time is the number one excuse for lack of activity that I hear as a fitness professional from clients and patients alike. In our 2016 NYNY survey, 67% of respondents blamed a busy work schedule and 49% blamed the time demands of family members as top obstacles in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. As highlighted in the previous two weeks’ articles, both a low activity level and spending too few minutes exercising categorize individuals in the ‘sedentary’ category receiving no physical benefit. Not only is it a lack of benefit, but a sedentary lifestyle is a major risk factor for heart disease and attributes to numerable chronic diseases. read...
