The Week Ahead

Next week is going to be a big week here at Hilton Head Health. Many of you are traveling from out of town to participate in the third annual Devin’s Dash Memorial 5K. You’ve probably heard a lot of buzz about this event and now it’s finally here! In just 10 days we will be celebrating what will be a first 5K for many, a reunion for our H3 family, and a celebration of life for all! I encourage you to join us in the festivities by attending the event, donating to Happiness Is Camping in Devin’s honor, or participating in a 5K in your town! Please share your experience with us on Facebook.

What else makes next week so special? Only the fact that Hilton Head Health will be hosting TEDxHiltonHeadthe night before Devin’s Dash! That’s right, the infamous TED inspired event is coming to Hilton Head for one night only!
