“The Art of Living Foundation recognizes that often people are the victims of physical and mental health concerns, triggered from accruing stress, especially in today’s modern development and life-style. Partnering in the Houston Walk is one way of supporting our city-wide resolve to make Houston a healthier city, in body, mind, and spirit”, points out Aurva Kapoor, a volunteer with the Art of Living Foundation who led the Foundation’s representation with the Houston Walk.
The Greater Houston community-wide walk was the inaugural event of this tradition, and was flagged off by Mayor Annise Parker and other dignitaries. Several Houston Area Agencies showed solidarity through formally partnering for this cause. Participants of the Houston Walk donated to these Houston Area Agencies, towards strengthening the City-wide resolve to help improve the mental health of people.
“The Art of Living Foundation is committed to bringing holistic health, peace of mind and stress-relief, much needed in today’s environment of high stress, physical and mental health disorders. We are a proud Houston Area Agency member of the Houston Walk today”, mentions Vivek Rajan, another representative of the Art of Living Foundation in the Houston Walk.
The Houston Walk was flagged off at 8.15 AM on the Saturday from Stude Park and culminated via a 5 kilometer loop trail to cheers at this first-of-its-
Pledges and donations to partnering Area Agencies are open until November 15, and more information is at http://www.thehoustonwalk.org .
So has the walk ended? “It has only begun. We are organizing stress-relief programs all over the city, and across the United States, to cater to fostering holistic health in youth and adult alike. We are committed to bringing a smile on everyone’s face in the City of Houston”, states Aurva with a smile on his face.
Houston, we have a problem? Not really – take a walk!
