Thousands of women to take part in the Kaiser Permanente Women’s Fitness Festival this Sunday

Some 4,000 women - sisters, mothers, daughters and girlfriends - are expected to participate in Sacramento's largest all women's walking & running event. The 10th Annual Kaiser Permanente Women’s Fitness Festival, hosted by Fleet Feet Sports, and is coming up Sunday June 8. New this year, the event features a half marathon, in addition to a 5K run/walk.

“At Kaiser Permanente, we are all about thriving. We were founded on the idea that you can live life to the fullest if you take care of yourself. So it is great to see so many women who are really taking that message to heart and are planning to participate in the Women’s Fitness Festival,” said Patricia Rodriguez, RN, Senior Vice President and Area Manager, Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento.

Old City Cemetery Tour "The Unlucky 13"

Old City Cemetery Tour "The Unlucky 13"

For your evening pleasure, as luck would have it, the Old City Cemetery is conducting a summer tour – “The Unlucky 13”. For one night in June on (you guessed it!) Friday the 13th, hear 13 stories about bad luck and poor souls being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Are you superstitious? We’ll dare you to walk under a ladder or step on a crack (especially if your mother is with you). Come early or stay after your tour to win prizes, if you’re lucky, in the “Test Your Luck” area. This promises to be a fun-filled event for the whole family for only $13 per person. Good luck—it’s also a full moon!

Tours start at 6:45 pm, 7:30 pm and 8:15 pm.

Tickets for this event are $13 per person and will be available through www.brownpapertickets.com/event/640321. Price includes the tour, entertainment, activities, and light refreshments. Proceeds benefit the Old City Cemetery Committee, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
