As the New Year moves forward and the holiday season becomes a memory, some charities in San Antonio are seeing a slump in donations. With constant demand for its services, one that feels the effects the most is the San Antonio Food Bank.
As the second edition of HEB’s 16-week Slimdown Showdown begins, the 25 competitors participating this year are taking physicals through the Methodist Health System.
This week is Fit Camp where the contestants attend classes on healthy living and do tests to see where they are physically. On the first day, 34-year-old Juan Ramirez of San Antonio is taking a stress test on a treadmill.
Ramirez said the $10,000 grand prize is not the main goal, instead he wants to lose about 60 lbs. and get a better handle on his lifestyle.
Eric Castillo and his organization, A Walk in My Shoes, has made it a mission to find shoes to fit everybody who needs a pair in San Antonio, and the 500 pairs of shoes he delivered to SAMMinistries on Friday is just part of the story.
Today the University Health System officially begins services at its new Robert B. Green Campus in downtown San Antonio.
The grand opening of the Clinical Pavilion on the Robert B Green Campus over the weekend means that starting today, patients can get primary care, pediatric care, women’s care, outpatient surgery, imaging and other services in a brand new, high-tech facility.
