Second annual ‘Home Run for Health’ planned for May 3

Residents and baseball fans throughout the Inland Empire are invited to hit a “Home Run for Health” May 3 when the Inland Empire 66ers face off against the Lake Elsinore Storm.

Riverside University Health System – Public Health, the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, and the California Health Collaborative – Tobacco Control Program are teaming up again to share positive health messages while enjoying America’s favorite pastime.

Fans are invited to pick up vouchers – while supplies last – for free admission to the May 3 game, when the 66ers host the Storm at San Manuel Stadium, 280 South E Street in San Bernardino. One voucher can be redeemed for four tickets and families are limited to two vouchers, for eight tickets total. Parking is $7 per vehicle and can be paid in credit or cash.

“We are very excited for the chance to meet with residents and talk to them about our programs and all the many ways we can help to improve their health and well-being,” said Kim Saruwatari, Riverside County public health director. “We’re planning on this being another great night at the ballpark.”

Last year’s inaugural event enjoyed a near-sellout crowd at San Manuel Stadium with thousands of fans stopping by the concourse to learn more about available public health programs, resources and services.

This year will feature a pre-game parade and a free Fun Zone for the kids.
