BEYOND is a community-wide outdoor festival that occurs the first Saturday of every New Year – this year taking place on Saturday, January 5, 2013.
It was initiated by the Zimmerman family in 2012 to commemorate the anniversary of the shootings that occurred on January 8, 2011 and has now become an annual tribute dedicated to strengthening the health and well being of our community.
While we cannot always prevent unexpected sorrows and loss in life, we can take a number of proactive steps, every day, to ensure that we and our loved ones live full, happy and healthy lives. Getting outdoors, being physically active, and connecting with others is vital to our own personal health and to the well-being of our community as a whole.
BEYOND provides Southern Arizonans with the opportunity to start the year off right by coming together, getting outdoors and being physically active at any one of a number of outdoor venues spread across our region. The event also raises awareness and connects people to year-round programs in the community so that they can be well informed, make good choices and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
As we continue the tradition of coming together on this day each year, it is our hope that something positive will emerge from the horrific tragedy of January 8, and that Southern Arizonans will commit themselves to building a stronger, healthier future.
With your generosity we can continue the positive sense of community-wide cohesion and strengthen our community’s health and well being.
