Altus ER staff encourages community to ‘Chose Well’ by joining local 5Ks

Altus Health, led by Chairman & CEO Taseer Badar of ZT Wealth, has always encouraged its respective communities to ‘Live Well,’ but its emergency center staff has taken that to a new level in 2016 by competing in numerous 5Ks.

Sporting shirts with the 2016 theme “When It’s More Than Urgent,” members of the Regional Team joined hundreds of others to participate in the seventh annual Gusher Marathon, Half-Marathon and 5K on February 27 in Beaumont.  On March 12, the team also competed in the third annual Snow Run and Walk 5K, also in Beaumont, which served as a fundraiser for the Ulcerative Colitis Foundation of America. Members of the Baytown ER staff also participated in the Jail Break Run on February 20.
