Yesterday, Hilton Head Health stopped by the Relay For Life event at Honey Horn. It was so moving to see so many people and businesses dedicating their time and resources for a such great cause. Relay For Life benefits the American Cancer Society, and as many of you know through your participation in our Devin’s Dash Memorial 5K, Hilton Head Health is also a supporter of the American Cancer Society. During the event, H3 handed out registration forms for Devin’s Dash, walked around meeting cancer survivors and their caretakers, and performed our Sun Salutation routine. This was my first volunteer event on Hilton Head Island and it surely will not be my last.

Now that I am an official resident of the island, I have been inspired to start getting more involved. There are so many benefits to volunteering in your community. Not only do you get to meet people and feel a since of pride in knowing that you’re doing something good, volunteering could also be great form of exercise. Try contacting your local Boys and Girls Club and volunteer to shoot some hoops or even host a field day. I’m planning to accompany Jeff Ford and Amber Shadwick when they visit the Hilton Head chapter of Boys and Girls Club to do a little cardio boxing with the kids. Registering for races is another great way to support the community while also incorporating fitness into your volunteerism. There are many online sites like www.active.com, that make it easy for you to find a race near you. So now that the weather’s nice, there are no excuses! Get out and volunteer! You may find that you will get a whole lot out of giving.
