San Antonio — On Oct. 11 the Institute for Women’s Health will be hosting the first annual Los Luchadores 5K: Fighting 4 Women’s Health Walk and Run at Olmos Basin Park at 8 a.m. All members of the San Antonio community are invited to join the fight by participating and dressing up in their best Luchador wrestling costume. Members of the community who participate in the costume challenge and have the best Luchador mask or costume can win cash prizes!
All proceeds will go to this year’s charity, the Seton Home for Pregnant Women, a local organization that exists to provide a nurturing environment for homeless teens who are pregnant or parenting and have chosen to keep their babies. The organization fosters childbirth and educates San Antonio teens on proper parenting skills, so race participants are contributing to our local community.
“This event is a first of its kind in San Antonio and is an attribute to the dedication of different organizations to our community,” said Estefania Aguelles of Institute for Women’s Health. The Olmos Basin Park is located in the Midtown area of San Antonio and is open to all ages. “We are extremely excited to kick-off what we hope will be an annual event,” added Arguelles.
Institute for Women’s Health visited KENS 5, Great Day SA on Oct. 10 to encourage community leaders and members to participate in the event. They dressed up in Luchador masks and had fun meeting with the hosts of Great Day SA.
The Los Luchadores 5k will be timed and runners can check their times at the end of the trail. Water will be provided at every mile and mile makers will have photos booths for everyone to enjoy. Participants are encouraged to join the fiesta and cool-down with food, live music, cold drinks and beer. To register or for more information, visit the race website. Registration is still open and will stay open until Oct. 11.
