Basically, no special event is needed to declare bad bruckenau a health city. Because what does the spa town stand for more than recreation, wellness and everything that is good for your health??
Every two years, the city organizes the "healthy city" event in cooperation with the forum trotzdem. In 2011, there were around 140 campaigns at 52 locations – a quite remarkable result for bad bruckenau. This year, too, there will be a lot to offer in the field of health. The focus is on the motto "active against cancer".
The organizers hit the nail on the head with this topic, because cancer affects many people. In addition, the city continues another tradition that has already been preserved: the pink run.
Ambitious goal: 777 women
after last year’s more than 500 participants in the charity run for the benefit of the german breast cancer prevention, mayor brigitte meyerdierks (CSU) has again set herself an ambitious goal. "This time we want to see 777 women on the track!" because the route, which leads from the city center through the schlobpark in the state bath and back again, is ge nau 7.77 meters long. At least that is the announcement of the city.
Thomas dill, who wants to get involved with the bad bruckenau gymnastics club, is optimistic. "If the weather is right, it could work out." however, dill still sees a need for action. "It can’t be that people walk through ludwigstrabe all alone", he states. "We still need zaungaste." the music clubs from the region are cordially invited to provide musical entertainment along the route, adds the mayor.
Everyone can get involved
for meyerdierks, the pink run is an expression of "women’s solidarity. She brought the idea with her from france. This fall’s run will be the third of its kind in the spa town.
"Every woman who is not affected knows someone who has breast cancer", meyerdierks encourages active participation in the charity run, which for her still has a "goose bump" feeling means. Whether it’s the pink run or the health city, the city is open to suggestions from the public. "Come to us!", encourages uwe schmidt, who is responsible for city marketing and thus also the health city. Whether it’s the laughing yoga group or the ladies from zumba fitness – the more people get involved, the more colorful the program becomes.
