VBKA Fun Run/Bike Ride
A sound body and a sound mind is an ageless principle that has been validated in every generation. In our modern era, science and technology are proving that fitness and good health practices lead to fuller lives.
VBKA members gather before the semi-annual "Fun Run" at Riverside park.

Be Your Best Self
Most people rarely, if ever, work at their optimum or peak performance levels. This could be changed if they knew how to achieve a higher level of overall fitness, a nutritious diet, and a healthier lifestyle. Fitness isn't just about push-ups. Fitness includes all the facets that help people perform at peak levels. What if YOU could be "Your Best Self?"
Fitness Tip: Regular activity has a number of proven, positive health effects, especially on heart health. Vigorous exercise strengthens the heart as a pump, making it a larger, more efficient muscle. Even moderate activity can boost HDL ("good") cholesterol, aid the circulatory system, and lower blood pressure and blood fats. All these effects translate into reduced risk for heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.
VBKA Bike Ride
Saturday, August 18, 2018
Instead of the "Fun Run," some VBKA students opt to participate in the "Bike Ride" -- a 15 mile bike ride that begins at Jaycee Park and turns around at SR512. Some participate in both events!
Congratulations to everyone, and thank you for coming out!
