Get Moving! Health and Wellness Fair Announced

BETHANY, OK (January 9, 2013) – Southern Nazarene University is hosting the inaugural Get Moving Health and Wellness Fair on Saturday, February 9th from 9am – 3pm in the Sawyer Center.

The goal of this event is to help our communities get active and educated on healthy living. The fair will include educational forums, demo exercise classes, a variety of health screenings, and booths for organizations all around the Oklahoma City area that promote healthy living products and services. 

"Let's be honest, Oklahoma doesn't have a great track record on issues of health and wellness. We hope Get Moving will help jump-start some health initiatives for our community in NW Oklahoma. We have a great variety of resources that will be available...and the event is totally FREE & open to the public. Join us and let this event help jump-start your 2013 health goals," said Kendra Thomson, Executive Director of Alumni Relations.

Attendees can visit booths throughout the day from vendors such as: Barre-3, Young Living Essential Oils, Runhers, Homeland, National Fitness Professionals Association, Best Feet Forward, Schlegel Bicycles, Snap Fitness, Red Coyote Running, OKC - County Health Department, Brixton Chiropractic & Acupuncture, Peak Nutrition, Rockwell YMCA, Doyle Chiropractic & Family Wellness, Natural Awakenings Magazine, and many more!

Sponsors for this event include: Natural Awakenings Magazine, SNU Office of Alumni Relations, Logo Promotions, Doyle Chiropractic & Family Wellness, and Homeland.

Vendor spaces are still available. If interested in applying to participate in the fair as a healthy living vendor/resource, please visit www.snu.edu/getmoving. There is a $25 fee per booth space.
