Join us for the 11th annual Baylor College of Medicine Wellness 5K organized by BCM students and BCM Life. Since 2012, this event has promoted health and service at Baylor to the Houston community. This year’s BCM Wellness 5K will be Saturday, Oct. 22, 2022 and will start and finish at the 6550 Bertner Ave, JP McGovern Commons Bldg.
Registration is now open! Register here to run or walk with us on Oct. 22, 2022.
Proceeds benefit the Grants for Leadership Opportunities in Wellness (GLOW) Award, which allows BCM students to apply for funding that supports internal and/or external community healthcare initiatives.
Recent GLOW Awards include:
- Yoganatomy – A yoga series spanning orientation and the first nine weeks of the anatomy class to reinforce terminology used in class and train students in common physical exam maneuvers.
- Emotional Roller Coaster Series – This is a series of five events from March to July in which students have the opportunity to share their experiences over lunch, coffee or dinner and participate in fun activities as well as learn about professional resources for counseling and emotional support.
- Longevity for Latinos – An initiative to combat health disparities being undertaken by the Latino Medical Student Association by conducting blood glucose and blood pressure screenings (with faculty supervision) in medically underserved areas of Houston that are predominantly Hispanic.
Our student activities and community outreach will benefit greatly from your participation in this 5K event.
