April 7 WORLD HEALTH RUN – Join wherever you are.
We are less than A WEEK away from our 1st Annual WORLD HEALTH RUN! Join us!
This week we are recognizing that tobacco kills nearly 6 million people each year. More than 5 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while more than 600 000 are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke. Unless urgent action is taken, the annual death toll could rise to more than 8 million by 2030.(http://www.who.int)
The 2018 WORLD HEALTH RUN is being held on April 7 (World Health Day). CUGH's participation in this event enables member institutions and student groups to raise funds and awareness for a US or international health-related project, support CUGH global activities, and build the conversation around health equity, globally. We are thrilled to be collaborating with Rotary clubs, the National Peace Corps Association, and Peace Care.
