An active, fun-filled day is what the St. Mary’s Fit & Healthy Coalition has planned for its first ever Fit & Healthy Expo on Sunday, May 20 at Chancellor’s Run Regional Park in California. The free event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and it promises something for everyone, including lots of door prizes.
“We’ll have everything from A to Z in the way of activities, contests, information and vendors,” said Jaclyn Shaw of Health Connections at MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital, who leads the coalition. “It’s a great opportunity to see what local wellness, health and fitness resources are available in the county and to have fun doing so.”
More than 25 vendors will be on hand to host activities, lead demonstrations, provide information and more. Some of the expo participants include Cornelia the Corn Husk, the mascot for Southern Maryland Agriculture, and DJ Kaycee, a local fitness DJ. In addition, the expo will include activities such as Zumba, Yoga dance, and Kids’ Yoga. There will even be a hula hoop contest, T-ball and kickball games available for youngsters. World Gym will also have an obstacle course set up at the event.
According to Shaw, the coalition plans for the expo to become an annual event in the county. “We wanted the Fit & Healthy Expo to be available to everyone and our sponsors are making that possible.” said Shaw. “We have such tremendous support throughout the county.”
In addition to MedStar St. Mary’s, event sponsors include the Charlotte Hall Veterans Home, College of Southern Maryland, Dick’s Sporting Goods, PNC Bank, St. Mary’s County Government, World Gym, The United Way of St. Mary’s County, and Vigybu.com’
