HEALTHIER TOGETHER Partners with McKendree Students for a Community Family Fitness Night
The HEALTHIER TOGETHER informational table.
On Wednesday, November 13th HEALTHIER TOGETHER participated in a Family Fitness Night event at Belle Valley School, in Belleville, IL. For the event, HEALTHIER TOGETHER teamed up with some of the Health and Wellness students of McKendree University to help teach the students and their families facts about healthy eating and healthy activities. Everyone who visited the table got to spin a table top wheel and was asked a question on a variety of health topics. Each participant was able to select a prize from the information table that included water bottles, reusable bags, flashlights, travel bandaid packs, and pens. Prizes, informational pamphlets, brochures and flyers were donated by our partners at BJC Memorial Hospital, HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, and the St. Clair County Health Department.
During the event, attendees got to visit participating organizations and learn about healthy eating, fitness, and various healthy activities as well as participate in a cross fit event, a push-up challenge, and a dance aerobics activity. HEALTHIER TOGETHER provided informational brochures on first aid, diabetes, healthy eating and so much more. Events like this help us to make a collective impact across St. Clair County while building relationships with our community members.
