600+ Attend Edgewater Fitness Fair

| March 10, 2011 | 0 Comments

Members from the community attended Get Movin’ 2011, a health and wellness Fair, held at Edgewater Fitness on February 26th from 8 AM to 1 PM. Filled with healthy snacks, informative vendors, and activities, the fair promoted healthy living and gave community members tools to make healthy lifestyle choices.

Vendors in attendance included American Diabetes Association, American Red Cross, Cypress Creek Therapy Associates, Chick-Fil-A, Living Health Chiropractic, and more.

Vendors shared literature regarding disease prevention, healthy cooking, and the community was able to enjoy performances by Edgewater Fitness’s Kid’s Zumba class and South River Martial Arts students.

“Get Movin’ was a great opportunity to introduce our new online news product to the community” said Mitchelle Stephenson, editor of Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch.  “There was decent foot traffic, an engaged and upscale audience, and of course plenty of yummy and healthy treats to snack on. I would definitely participate in another.”

Edgewater Fitness also held a Spin-A-Thon for Ride 2 Recovery from 7 am to 11 am.

Jessica Duckworth, a spin instructor at Edgewater Fitness, led the first two hours of the Spin-A-Thon and then participated in the final two. “The energy was amazing, everyone seemed so excited and it showed in their work out. The room was steaming hot and everyone was sweating. It was a great cause and I was honored to teach two classes”

The spin-a-thon raised over $1700, which will be directly donated to Ride 2 Recovery which benefits the rehabilitation of wounded soldiers.
