This Sunday, November 19th, come cheer the 30+ LifeLong staff who will be running in the Berkeley Half Marathon. Not everyone is running the 13.1 mile half marathon distance. There is also a 1K run for kids and families and 5K and 10K races. Everyone participating deserves to be applauded for doing something good for their health, and representing LifeLong. Proceeds from the race benefit the Berkeley Education Fund. You can find more information here.

Mark your calendar for the return of LifeLong’s legendary end of year party Thursday, December 14th at Craneway Pavillion in Richmond.

Festivites will begin at 5:30 pm and feature festive food, drinks, and raffles. Music and dancing with DJ Freddie. With apologies, due to space and fiscal constraints, attendance is limited to LifeLong Medical Care employees only. RSVPs will required for planning purposes.

LifeLong’s Howard Daniel Health Center staff has gone all out for Halloween this year. They’ve decorated the center’s hallways and are running a contest, with patients voting on their favorite decorations to determine the winner. “Deck the Halls” has been given a whole new meaning! Meanwhile, our Pinole Health Center is pretty pumpkin central. Staff are showing off their artistic talents with a pumpkin painting contest.
