Health and Fitness Festival gets everyone up and moving

Participants are enjoying zumba at this years Health and Fitness Festival.

 

What do you do in January on a beautiful seven degree day? You start moving to stay warm. This is exactly what many Rockford residents did at this year’s Health and Fitness Festival. Along with several area health professionals to offer health screenings and answer medical questions many came out for the activity as well.

The REF Zumba Fundraiser was an overwhelming success with Natalie Maj and other guest instructors keeping the energy level at an all time high.

This year’s “Dashing Through the Snow” winter run awarded Valley View elementary school the winners of the “Healthy Challenge 2010” trophy for most participants.

Students participate in this years Dashing Through the Snow race at North Rockford Middle School.

 

The overall ½ mile race winners were: Boys, Gabriel Gunneson 3:17 (Roguewood Elementary), Nolan Darby 3:18 (Meadowridge) and Ryan Blackburn 3:27 (Crestwood). Girls, Julia Scheffler 3:46 (Roguewood), Caitie Usher 3:56 (Belmont) and Megan Lindeboom 4:01 (Valley View).

Rockford Community Services would like to thank the Early Bird Running Club for their involvement in our first “Dashing Through The Snow” race as well as all of the other businesses and health care professionals that took part in this event. A special Thank You to Spartan and Meijer stores for their sponsorships.
