Meet up with your team leaders and new participants, and kick off the season with a one-mile walk along the river path.
BTE will be kicking off a spring session on Feb. 25 and will train for two great run/walk events:
Catalina State Park Trail run/walk (5.2 miles) on Saturday, April 7
Cinco de Mayo 10K (6.2 miles) on Sunday, May 2
We encourage you to participate in one or both of these events, but they are not required to participate in BTE.

Better Than Ever (BTE) is a grass-roots effort by The University of Arizona Cancer Center designed to encourage participants to make exercise a regular part of life, and work to prevent cancer. This fitness and fundraising program provides a welcoming, non-competitive atmosphere for participants of all fitness levels to train for local running, walking or cycling events.
According to the National Cancer Institute, physically active women have a 40 percent reduced risk of developing breast cancer, and physically active men have a 10-30 percent reduced risk of developing prostate cancer. Exercise can also help in the prevention of colon cancer and certain chronic diseases.
Better Than Ever resources include:
Multiple weekly group training sessions
Volunteer Training Leaders to guide team members
Training schedule and training packet
Fundraising tips and suggestions
Cross-training and social events
Free BTE shirt
BTE currently offers group trainings session in Tucson, Green Valley and Sedona. Participants are also welcome to train on their own in any of these cities, or anywhere in the world!
