Being outside with your family and friends not only creates lasting memories. When people come together for a cause, you are able to meet those that have similar interests at heart and you can feel good knowing that you are helping to make a difference in people’s lives. It is easy to find these events in your local area, too. The ZERO Prostate Cancer Run in Los Angeles, for example, helps raise funds to provide comprehensive treatment information to patients, education to those at risk and free testing for at-risk men across the country. The 5K run is part of the ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge, America’s premier men’s health series, which has events in over three-dozen cities this year. There will always be an event close to you that lets you participate and support those in your life that have been affected by cancer and other ailments.
Other Local Events to Research and Attend
Rather than staying in on nights and weekends, why not find a local event to help pass the time? By checking with your city’s visitors’ center you will no doubt be able to find activities, concerts and other events that are going on around you all the time. This way you can enjoy more of your free time outdoors and unwind from long days and weeks at work. Explore parks, restaurants and fairs near your town as well. In the end, giving back to your community and supporting causes close to your heart will help you get the quality of life you are looking for as you help build up your city with your friends and family. Start your research online so you can begin making your list of upcoming things to do near you!
