This year, Sharp Rees-Stealy is the presenting sponsor for the Summer Movies in the Park program, a County of San Diego effort that will show 140 free outdoor movies at different venues throughout the county, with an anticipated audience of more than 40,000.
As part of the sponsorship, an energetic team from Sharp Rees-Stealy — called the Health Squad — introduces the medical group’s new “Hands up for Health” wellness initiative and leads the audience through a brief, fun and safe exercise routine before they settle down to enjoy the evening’s featured movie.
Sharp Rees-Stealy developed Hands up for Health with input and guidance from physicians and care providers as a way to help people of all ages live healthier lives.
Hands up for Health includes these five essential elements:
- Eat – Enjoy real food, skip the processed food and sugar
- Move – Get your heart rate up for at least 30 minutes a day
- Connect – Talk with a friend or family member at least once a day
- Breathe – Be mindful in all you do
- Sleep – Aim for eight hours a night
Moviegoers receive a Hands up for Health whiteboard to help them plan and practice the five essentials daily. The presentations and giveaways have been a big hit with crowds.
Attendees are also encouraged to post photos and videos of themselves on Facebook, sharing their own Hands up for Health routines and tagging Sharp Rees-Stealy and the hashtag #HandsupforHealth.
Sharp Rees-Stealy experts are rolling out the Hands up for Health program at other community events to spread the wellness message to people of all ages throughout San Diego.
