The annual Health Living Fair is set for March 10 this year, marking the 11th year for the event.
Organizers say this year’s event has something for everyone, whether you are just starting your healthy living plan or you are a successful triathlete who is considering competing in the Ultraman endurance triathlon.
During the 2018 Healthy Living Fair, organizations will profile resources, products and services that support and encourage a healthy lifestyle. There will be activity demos, healthy eating sessions, speakers, Healthy Living Assessment stations and over 80 information booths.
The Healthy Living Assessment stations feature health professionals who will take your blood pressure, met with you one-on-one to discuss stress, eating healthy, being fit, how to stop smoking, and setting your healthy-living goals. You will then be encouraged to take your completed assessment to your next annual doctor’s appointment to review and set up a plan.
All elements of the event are free to the public, but registration is required for the Healthy Living Assessment program and can be in advance on the event website at healthylivingfair.com or in-person on the day of the event. All pre-registered participants with the Healthy Living Assessment program will be entered into a draw, which will take place at the end of the event.
The Okanagan Healthy Living Fair Society is also looking for volunteers to help with the fair. You can sign up through the website by clicking on the volunteer link and submitting your interest; there are two shifts and three different roles to chose from.
There are less than 10 booths remaining, but organizations wanting to participate can also visit the website and complete the online inquiry form.
The event takes place in the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 10.
