Celebrating its fifth year of health promotion, education and encouraging physical activities, Staying Alive Southlake will take place on Saturday, April 7, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., in the parking lot of Gateway Church. Texas Health Southlake – in partnership with the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Go Red for Women campaign, City of Southlake, and other local businesses and community organizations – is hosting the healthy event, which is also joining forces with Run4Elise to offer a 5K and 1 mile fun run.
With Zumba classes, free hands-only CPR training, life jacket and bike helmet fittings, healthy eating vendors and giveaways, Staying Alive Southlake seeks to provide Southlake residents and visitors with a free and exciting event to help raise awareness about heart disease, the number one killer of Americans. More than the event’s name, event-goers are encouraged to understand Staying Alive Southlake’s meaning through hands-only CPR training, which is performed to the rhythm of the disco classic “Stayin’ Alive.” According to the AHA, hands-only CPR can more than double or triple a person’s chance of survival.
This year, Staying Alive Southlake is teaming up with Run4Elise for a fun run that benefits the Elise Cerami Memorial Scholarship and the Swim4Elise Foundation, which honors the life of Elise Cerami by promoting water safety through swimming scholarships and community outreach education. Joining the festivities will be Psycho Shanon Murphy from KISS-FM, Southlake Mayor Laura Hill, local police officers and firefighters, and several local businesses including Kendra Scott and NRH20.
Staying Alive Southlake is a free event and no pre-registration is required.
