Organizers from the Healthiest Town in America are looking for sponsors and vendors to participate in the third annual event on Saturday, March 5.

During the family friendly event, attendees can participate in a 5K fun walk/run, a bike race and kids activities. People also may also bring their dogs for the Healthy Dog area.

The event’s coordinators use the occasion to educate and inform the public on the recognition, prevention and reversal of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

The Healthiest Town in America does this by holding expos and events, community outreach, and connecting the community with reputable heath-related businesses.

Dr. Jeff Monash so strongly believes in the event’s mission to educate and inform that he is returning as a sponsor for a third year and is serving as the 2011 HTA president.

“I want to do as much as possible to promote a healthier lifestyle for Oro Valley and Tucson residents,” he noted.

The event provides Monash with the unique opportunity to interact one-on-one with people in the community and educate them about his medical specialty — bariatric surgery — and healthier eating habits.

As an added benefit, sponsoring HTA has “increased awareness of who I am and my business,” Monash said.

Sponsorships range in price and types. A tent sponsorship costs $300, which includes a tent with an event table and two chairs. A title sponsorship is $5,000. It includes exposure throughout northwest Tucson with a lead line in all advertising, printed materials, event programs, and the event banner as well as an event table. The title sponsor also will be introduced at the event and receive five minutes of stage time.

A corporate event sponsor is $1,500; these sponsorships are limited to 10 businesses. A stage sponsor is $600; it is limited to nine.

Healthiest Town in America will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the BASIS Charter School parking lot within the Steam Pump Village in Oro Valley. Organizers are expecting 2,000 people to attend the event.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
