Just ‘Bearing’ it all the way to the finish line…... Grin and Bear it Run … fun for the whole family. A WIN for Healthy Beginnings! Each year, over 500 children and families attend screenings because of fundraising events like Grin and Bear It Run and community donations. Whether families and community runners decided to walk or run the one mile family fun run, jog the 5K or tested their endurance with our 10K route – participation made a huge impact on the lives of Central Oregon children and families.
On March 7th, Healthy Beginnings hosted its 13
Annual Grin & Bear It Run and Family Fun Run at the Les Schwab Amphitheater. Over 300 runners showed up for both a 5k & 10k run/walk. Families enjoyed a ‘fun run’ as well. Individual competitive runners came out in droves. We also had corporate teams organized by companies including Mosaic Medical and Bluefish who got into a friendly Photo Credit: Kelli Hayes competition spirit. There were several community teams that came together to share their enthusiasm for healthy lifestyles. The weather cooperated with a welcomed dry but cool day, which the runners really appreciated. Healthy Beginnings raised over $30,000 to go directly towards our mission of screening children throughout Central Oregon.

STAMPS of APPROVAL A Bear-Hug Testimonial
We provided a Preschool Screening in Bend in response to a request from the head preschool teacher. She felt that there were several children who needed attention, but whose parents had not yet brought them to a community screening clinic, one of the “12 Point Kid Inspection” we provide multiple times throughout the year and the region. Vicki had demonstrated some extremely disruptive and destructive behavior in class. We administered an ASQ and an ASQSE and also a vision screening. The assessments indicated that Vickie truly had no developmental concerns – but had a significant vision concern. She was referred to an optometrist for a complete vision exam and diagnosis. We know from experience and research that once she receives vision care her behavior will improve. Her classmates and teachers can now relate to her in a different light and her outlook is great thanks to early detection of her vision concern.
