VP for Community Benefit, Julia Strange

Says VP for Community Benefit, Julia Strange, “As Tucson’s community hospital, TMC’s vision is to improve the health of people in our community. The Run Tucson and Southern Arizona Roadrunner events are a perfect way for people in Pima County to get involved in their community, be physically active and have a great time doing it, all of which are important components of health. We love that the Run Tucson/SAR events are appropriate for all levels of fitness, are spread out around our beautiful city, and really encourage the youth of our community to be physically active. Being physically active is essential to our health, yet so many of us struggle with making it a regular part of our lives. We hope that by continuing to sponsor events such as these in our community, we will help more people find activities they enjoy that will improve their health and ultimately their quality of life.”
