The Rialto Community is getting excited as Mayor Deborah Robertson’s 7th Annual 5K Run Around the Rocks is back on Sunday, November 6th, 2022. After being dark since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CEMEX and Rialto Unified School District collaborative 5K run is now registering participants. “This event is open to the public, and all proceeds raised will be awarded to the Rialto Unified School District’s STEM Program. The last time this event was held, we donated over $12,000 to the STEM program and the top three classrooms in the district,” said Susan Patane, Run Coordinator. Each participant will receive a bib, which is a great way for participants to practice for a bigger run or to compete with others.

Inland Empire Health and Wellness Coach, Evan Roberts, stresses the importance of sleep to all of his clients and the world. The owner of Elemental Health and Wellness Coaching, Roberts, says that sleep is the one area that contributes to a higher level of health and wellness. In a day and age where billions of people across the globe pride themselves on being worker bees and living under the notion of “I’ll sleep when I die,” it’s important to remind people that it’s okay to rest and that sleep is imperative to living a healthy life. “It’s important to sleep, but it’s even more important to gain quality sleep. People don’t realize that garnering quality sleep will allow them to enjoy a healthier life and possibly elongate their life,” said Roberts. While Roberts understands that not everyone has the opportunity to work with a health and wellness coach, he is passionate about spreading valuable information on improving people’s sleep quality. Teaching acro-yoga in Santa Monica, Roberts stays busy coaching clients, recording his wellness podcast, teaching classes, and speaking to various groups about health and wellness.
