Obesity affects one in three American adults and can lead to serious health risks including diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, and even some cancers. In New Jersey, 27.4% of the adult population is affected by obesity.

Join the ASMBS Foundation and Hackensack University Medical Center – Center for Bariatric Medicine and Surgery, on Sunday, June 10, 2018, as we walk to raise awareness of obesity and learn more about the treatment and prevention options available in our community.

Early Bird Registration is $15 and ends May 11, 2018. Use promo code FUNDRAISE when registration online.

This is a “set your own pace” event. We encourage you to walk (or run) as much or as little as you’d like, no pressure!

Through research and education, we are able to better understand this disease and how to combat it.
