¡Vive tu vida!
Empower Brokerage participated in the 9th annual ¡Vive tu vida! — Get Up! Get Moving!® event in Brownsville, Texas on October 19, 2019 at Dean Porter Park. This free event – created by the National Alliance for Hispanic Health – is a national, family-friendly event focused on promoting physical activity and healthy lifestyles for the whole family.
¡Vive tu vida! is hosted by leading Hispanic community-based organizations and the Brownsville Community Health Center was selected to lead this year’s event in Brownsville, Texas. Attendees had access to free health information and screenings, including blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, vision, and dental. There were also activities for the whole family including Zumba dancing; an obstacle course; soccer, football, and baseball clinics; fishing and kayaking clinics; and cooking, martial arts, boot camp, and gymnastics demonstrations. Participants also had the chance to win raffles, giveaways, enjoy healthy snacks, and listen to music.
Our goal is to create an impact within our community on three levels; Individual: introducing opportunities for physical activity & sports, healthy lifestyle education, and disease prevention education, Family: introducing family oriented activities and services, and Community: creating a platform that connects participants to community physical activity opportunities and follow-up health services. – Brownsville Community Health Center
Brownsville organizations, such as Empower Brokerage, were invited to sponsor the event. Dori Moody, the Regional Sales Director at Empower, along with Tricia Garza, Event Coordinator, were provided a table to discuss health-related information with attendees. Dori and Tricia were on hand to answer any questions attendees may have had on their Medicare benefits, community resources and services. In addition to Medicare 101 questions, they also distributed plan information for Guarantee Trust Life (GTL) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Brownsville families had a great time at the ¡Vive tu vida! — Get Up! Get Moving!® event. Cristela Gonzalez, Special Projects Coordinator for Brownsville Community Health Center, thanked the sponsors for the information shared with the families in attendance.
On Behalf of the Brownsville Community Health Center we would like to thank all our Sponsors and Community Partner Organizations who supported and participated in this year’s Vive Tu Vida Event, on Saturday, October 19, 2019.
