What a great day! The 2019 Baltimore Running Festival was incredible. The inaugural Belcara Health 5K race was a huge success, and watching the beautiful city of Baltimore come together to welcome runners from all over the country was such a special experience.
Our very own Dr. Michael Cohen opened the weekend festivities as part of the press conference panel. Sharing the stage with the Mayor of Baltimore, the Police Commissioner, and other major race sponsors such as Under Armour and Pandora, Dr. Cohen expressed the sentiment our entire team shares, noting:
“It is an absolute honor to actively participate in an event that brings people together from our neighborhoods, our state, and beyond. Together, we are creating the narrative of strength, energy, camaraderie, and vitality that is the Greater Baltimore Community.”
On race day, the Beclara Health Running Team, comprised of 25 patients, nurses, physicians, and staff members, gave it their all out on the course. After running the race, many of our team members hung out in our relaxation zone, answering questions from prospective patients.
Our events team worked together to bring the “Belcara Health experience” out to the Inner Harbor. Armed with the prize wheel, hydration beverages provided by our Registered Dietitian Samantha Walters , and the expert guidance of our Integrative Medicine Physican, Dr. Eric Nager, Belcara Health was one of the most sought after stops at the Health and Wellness Expo and the Celebration Village. Thank you again to all those who joined us throughout the festivities, especially to the lucky recipients of our FREE IV hydration treatments! We gave away free HydraFacials , Skincare items, free sunscreen on behalf of our Dermatology team and free sunglasses, courtesy of our Ophthalmology team.
Until next year, keep running Baltimore!
