PeaceHealth partners with Bellingham Traverse to promote community health and wellness

BELLINGHAM, Wash., April 29, 2013 – Recreation Northwest, a nonprofit health and wellness event organization recently launched in Bellingham, Washington, is excited to announce a partnership with PeaceHealth. Together, Recreation Northwest and PeaceHealth encourage local businesses to facilitate relationships with community members and promote active lifestyles by participating in the 2013 Bellingham Traverse.

Recreation Northwest hosts a number of multi-sport events, including the Bellingham Traverse, which celebrates the life cycle of wild salmon, and the natural and urban challenges of their journey. On September 21, 2013 solo, tandem and relay teams will compete in running, mountain biking, road biking and paddling legs of the Bellingham Traverse, ending with a Team TREK to the finish line at Boundary Bay Brewery.

Recreation Northwest and PeaceHealth urge local companies to form teams and train throughout the year for this Northwest Rite of Passage. 

“PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center is pleased to sponsor this local community wellness event. In keeping with our mission of promoting personal and community health, we are excited to be a part of the Traverse this year,” said Rhonda Curry, Director of Marketing and Communications at PeaceHealth.

PeaceHealth will be encouraging its own employees to get on board. 

PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center, which includes a not-for-profit full-service hospital founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace, is part of the Northwest Network of Care within the PeaceHealth system with medical centers in Alaska, Washington and Oregon. In addition to the hospital and PeaceHealth Medical Group, PeaceHealth’s local services include several Centers of Excellence, North Cascade Cardiology, a diagnostic laboratory, a joint venture outpatient imaging service, a specialty clinic in Sedro-Woolley and a critical access hospital on San Juan Island.
