You run. Nike donates.
On 8.31.2008 Join millions of runners for a worldwide 10K like no other.

Nike will be donating USD $3 million to our three charity partners – you get to affect how we distribute the dollars. Pick the charity you want your miles to count toward.

3 Charities:

1) You can fight climate change by running for WWF

2) The UN refugee agency is proud to be one of the causes to benefit, through our ninemillion.org campaign. Run for refugee children.

3) The Lance Armstrong Foundation, we unite people to fight cancer believing that unity is strength, knowledge is power and attitude is everything.

I recommend that we organize a Wellness Fare where all the healthcare partitioners of mar vista come together...

Anita,
I love this idea! Please invite your friends in the Wellness community to join this site and group. Once you have a number of people you can organize this event... and we will help facilitate it.
Good luck!
John

I am not connected to the Health/Wellness community... but really encourage the development of this group. Those of you who know others in the field... get the word out!

Sustainable Health Care
What is Sustainable Health Care? What sustainable/alternative practitioners are right here in Mar Vista and Venice?
Event on March 20, 2010 from 1:00 to 5:30pm. Looking to start the discussion, the envisioning, the local collaborating. More information at www.transitionmarvista.blog

Hi! Just saw this group and am wondering if it's still active and how to get more involved.

I'm a Licensed Acupuncturist, Herbalist and Licensed Psychotherapist - definitely an alternative health care practitioner here in our area!
