Healthy LifeStars (HLS) held its Healthy Hike Spring 2017 April 22nd. The two-hour hike started at 8:30am with a small band of hikers determined to brave the 105°weather. Earlier that morning, staff set up an information table under the shade of the park Ramada. As hikers came rolling in on foot, bicycle, and car, they stopped to visit our display where they received free water, fruit, and high protein bars and conversation before starting off on the trail. Everyone had a great time hiking and talking to other hikers about our mission to motivate and educate kids to live active, healthy lives now and in the future. HLS received donations from several passersbys. Many wonderful thanks to our Healthy Hike Spring 2017 sponsors including R Bar Energy, https://www.rbarenergy.com/, and Safeway at 5th Ave and Osborn in Phoenix.
