Health Plays Prominent Role at AASBO Annual Conference

The Arizona Association of School Business Officials (AASBO) held its 60th Annual Conference – the Diamond Jubiliee Event – last weekend, July 17-20, 2013 at the Starr Pass in Tucson.  This year, the Valley Schools Employee Benefits Trust (VSEBT) sponsored a run/walk event to promote health and wellness.  School employees often lead a sedentary life of lesson planning, paperwork, and educating children in a classroom setting.  Opportunities to involve them in organized wellness events can make a big impact on their health, and also set a good example for children who view them every day.

Valley Schools sponsored the free Healthy Heart Walk/Run that started bright and early at 6:45 a.m. Friday morning.   Around a hundred walkers showed up and made the mile trek into the beautiful hills of Tucson. Walkers were given T-shirts, Sunscreen and Water and staff were available to assist anyone who needed help.

As AASBO stateed in their brochure for the event:  Continuing in the tradition of past years, remember to plan to participate in this family- oriented AASBO event. Research indicates that a routine of moderate exercise will relieve stress, help with weight control and increase the likelihood of reaching those “golden years”.  This event involves an invigorating walk/jog (approximately one-mile) around the grounds of the JW Marriott Starr Pass complex.
