The fifth annual Strong B.A.N.D.S. Campaign will return to 65 participating Army garrisons world-wide in May. Strong B.A.N.D.S. — which stands for Strong Balance, Activity, Nutrition, Determination and Strength — promotes garrison fitness and wellness programs available to Soldiers, Families, retirees and civilians. Participating garrisons will plan a minimum of five fitness and health-related events throughout the month. A new addition in 2015 is Run to Honor, an event developed in partnership with the Survivor Outreach Services program. Thirty-four garrisons will conduct various Run to Honor events including Fun Runs, 5Ks and 10Ks. For more information, visit the U.S. Army MWR website at new.armymwr.com/news/news.aspx?nid=891.
