Health & Fitness Festival coming soon

by LISA JACOBS
Executive Director
Rockford Community Services

As we approach the New Year, for many of us this is a time to evaluate our health and fitness goals. On Saturday, Jan. 30, Rockford Community Services would like to help with this by hosting a Health & Fitness Festival. We are excited to offer families an opportunity to observe as well as participate in various fitness classes offered in the community. Also included will be informative healthy cooking demonstrations, the opportunity to visit with local businesses regarding healthy lifestyle choices, and a chance to speak with experts in health care about medical questions.

This event will have several resources available in health care and healthy living for every age group. Some examples of this will be fingerprinting for the safety of younger children, speed and agility training for the serious athletes, health care screenings, glaucoma testing, alternative medicine presentations, senior living choices and more.

Our goal is to bring awareness to the importance of healthy living to the community. The Health & Fitness Festival will be held at North Rockford Middle School from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. If you would like to participate, you are invited to reserve a booth. Please call the Rockford Community Services office at (616) 863-6322. We look forward to your support in making this an annual community event!
