Get connected to your community!

Both Legacy and the City of Houston are sponsoring community events this spring.

By Barrett White

Throughout February and into the springtime months, Legacy will be hosting our own community events, as will the City of Houston. With the season just a couple months ahead, so what better time to start penciling fun community events onto your calendar than now? Community events can be a thrilling way to relax with your relatives and neighbors, and to meet others in the city. With over 7 million people living in the Houston Metro Area – that’s a lot of potential friends!

So, what is going on in Houston over the next few months?

In honor of American Heart Month, Legacy is hosting the BikeRx Program in collaboration with the American Heart Association and Houston BCycle. The event will be held at our Fifth Ward clinic on February 18 beginning at 9AM.

Did you know that over 30% of Houston adults have high blood pressure and nearly 40% do not have it under control? Damage to your blood vessels from high blood pressure can lead to heart attack, stroke, heart failure and other serious health issues.

By providing access to bikes through Legacy’s BikeRx program, people of all ages can increase their recreation level, mobility, and improve their health.

This annual event offers Houstonians and visitors a unique way to view the city with bike routes winding through Houston’s historic neighborhoods, scenic districts and parks. With three ride length options, the Tour de Houston is the perfect event for leisure riders or cycling enthusiasts.
