Event Description:


Wellness AtoZ Day, recognized by the State of Arizona and Governor Doug Ducey, is a day to acknowledge the positive health and wellness opportunities that Arizona has to offer. On this day, May 20, we celebrate physical activity and healthy lifestyles. We encourage everyone to get their hearts pumping by exploring the breathtaking beauty of Arizona’s desert.
Wellness AtoZ Day celebrates the anniversary of the Wellness AtoZ initiative launched in 2017. It also signifies completion of the spring activity challenge, Wellness Wonders of Arizona.


Event Details:

8 - 8:10 a.m. Arrival, welcome and unveiling of Wellness AtoZ Day Proclamation. Group photos will take place at this time.
8:10 – 9 a.m. Celebrate Wellness AtoZ Day by walking, running or biking your way around the many trails surrounding Papago Park.


We will meet in the parking lot at the gazebo at 8 a.m. for a brief welcome and introduction. Additional prizes will be awarded to Wellness Wonders participants. Water and fruit will be available. You are encouraged to explore the various trails that surround the park. The paths are paved in some areas and dirt in others. You may run or walk the trails and we encourage you to stop at all “fitness areas” that are located along the 5K mapped out loop. Please bring plenty of water and wear sunscreen.
