Valley West wellness fair & family fun walk
June 21, 2010
The Valley West Community Hospital Wellness Fair is coming up on Thursday, July 1, from 1 - 4 p.m. An annual event, the Valley West Wellness Fair is designed to share health, safety and wellness information with Sandwich and surrounding communities. You’re invited to Let’s Play! and learn about the importance of developing healthy habits as children.
At the Wellness Fair, the public will have access to numerous vendors and exhibitors in the health and safety field, including many hospital departments and services.
In addition to the large number of vendors attending, Valley West Rehabilitation Services is sponsoring a Family Fun Walk, a short walking event to encourage families to get moving together. Activity and give-away stations along the route will help keep families moving and interested along the route.
The Wellness Fair features activities for adults and children, including blood pressure screenings and body fat analysis, glucose finger sticks (2 hour fasting necessary), dermascan, hearing screenings, as well as games, themed photo tent, jump castle, bungee run, rock-climbing wall, human spheres and petting zoo.
Valley West Community Hospital will provide sports balls for the first 200 children while supplies last. In addition the walk and activities, the Wellness Fair also features fitness demonstrations and the announcement of the Valley West and Fox Valley Family YMCA’s Weight No More competition. Water and healthy snacks will be available at no cost. This event is free to the public.
