Event Details:


BOUNCE (Behavior Opportunities Uniting Nutrition Counseling and Exercise) will hold its second annual 5K Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, April 27, 2013 on the UH Campus. The event is organized by Dr. Norma Olvera, the Health Student Organization, and the Hispanic Health Coalition.  Proceeds from the event benefit Healthy Lifestyle Programs designed to promote healthy eating, exercise, and positive body image in Hispanic and African American youth.

BOUNCE is an award winning health and nutritional program that takes standard nutrition and physical activity intervention to the next level by fostering the mother-child partnership; heeding the cultural and gender specific behaviors that shape perceptions about food, exercise, and body image; and promoting the healthy lifestyle as fun.  Olvera explains, “The idea behind the program is to teach young girls about positive body image and healthy food and exercise choices.”
