More than 93 million Americans are affected by the disease of obesity. Here in Georgia, our obesity rate is 17th in the country. More than 65% of our residents battle this disease.
For most people, fad diets and quick weight loss “tricks” simply don’t work. Here at Gwinnett Medical Center, we know it takes a winning combination of bariatric surgery, hard work, healthy eating and determination to win the fight against obesity.
This is just one of the reasons why The Center for Weight Management at Gwinnett Medical Center is doing everything we can to bring attention to this lethal disease.
Now, we need your help.
Help us raise awareness about obesity by joining us for our FIRST 5K walk/run. Whether you’re walking or running for yourself or someone else, you’ll help Gwinnett Medical Center educate others about the importance of weight loss.
All proceeds from this fun 5K was donated to the Gwinnett Medical Center Foundation to help in our fight against obesity.
Gwinnett Medical Center Obesity Awareness Walk was held on Saturday, March 29, 2014 at Tribble Mill park. Our registration total was 200 for our very first Walk event! If you participated and would like to see your official time results, please click on the link below.
