Neighborhood News from Southern Coos Health Foundation
Summer’s here! Ready to get moving? For the Health of Bandon Activity Challenge is a virtual fundraiser focused on promoting healthy lifestyles for residents of Bandon and beyond.
The Activity Challenge takes place June 14 through 28, presented by Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center with the Southern Coos Health Foundation. Participants choose any activity that gets them moving and exercising. All they have to do is log miles walked or hiked, the time spent golfing, surfing, playing tennis, gardening or doing yoga. Any activity or combination of activities qualifies.
Sign up online at SouthernCoos.org/healthybandon. Registration is only $10, and covers an event T-shirt, a medal, and a certificate. All will be sent to participants in advance of the event.
For the Health of Bandon is a fundraiser for the hospital’s foundation and will support services such as educational scholarships for local people working toward health care careers, as well as the annual drive-through free Flu Shot Clinic, along with other benefits to the hospital and community.
Bandon City Park is a great location to have fun and get moving. Take a stroll through the park, gather friends for a round of disc golf or a visit to the dog park. Kids of all ages can romp in the playground. Walk a few blocks west to explore trails and beach access at the Coquille Point headland viewpoint. (Visit our Contact page for Google map directions to the park.)
