DSCC MWR will use the Strong B.A.N.D.S. campaign to promote fitness, wellness and resiliency during National Physical Fitness and Sports Month in May.

DSCC MWR is offering five events to DSCC Associates, Military and families focused on Balance, Activity, Nutrition, Determination and Strength (B.A.N.D.S.) -- all key components of overall well-being and resiliency.

"When we talk about well-being and resiliency, really, that's what MWR does.  Strong B.A.N.D.S. is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase what we have to offer and to get our community actively engaged," said Steve Coulson, MWR Business & Recreation Director.

Taking the game of golf to the extreme, the kickoff event on May 12 will be four-hole speed golf at Eagle Eye Golf Course. Players will play four holes as fast as possible with as few strokes as possible. Clubs will be provided for those who need them. 

On May 18, DSCC’s Child Development Center children and parents will enjoy a short walk while reading “Mud Puddle.” Each child will receive a complimentary copy of the book to take home.

The following day, the installation will hold its second annual Memorial Run 5K, honoring our fallen service members and police officers. The first 150 to register and participate will receive a t-shirt.

On May 21, MWR will host a free Resiliency Hike at Walnut Woods-Buckeye trail. Hiking has many benefits, including weight-loss, improved cardio health, stress-relief, increased focus and even increased creativity & problem-solving ability.

And to close out the month, the fitness center will hold an Aquatics Open House May 31 to celebrate the opening the pool for the summer. The day will include a free water aerobics class and open swim.
