Baylor College of Medicine Wellness 5k
The Baylor College of Medicine Wellness 5k and 1k brings together future physicians and members of the Houston community for a day of running and health awareness. The run takes place across from the Baylor College of Medicine.
By bringing together future physicians and the Houston community in a fitness event, they hope to show that exercise is not only in a doctor's advice but in a doctor's way of life! The first annual Baylor College of Medicine Wellness 5K was organized by medical students in 2012 with the mission of promoting wellness both within Baylor and the Houston community as a whole. That year, they hosted over 500 runners and walkers and raised over $18,000 for charity and community projects.
