Move Well Sioux Falls Free Community Fitness Festival
The Live Well Sioux Falls Coalition is a group of businesses, organizations and individuals, working to improve the health of all of us in Sioux Falls. The reasons probably seem obvious; better health leads to better, longer lives with lowered chances for chronic disease and heartbreaking early death.
But there are many other reasons. The state of a person's health impacts so many facets of our lives from our jobs, to family life, participation in school and community events and much more.
Recent statistics show that, "1 in 2 people in our country suffers from chronic disease, 7 out of 10 deaths in the U.S. are caused by chronic disease, a baby born today, could have a shorter life span than that of its parents and chronic disease is largely preventable".
With all of this in mind, Live Well Sioux Falls is presenting a Move Well Sioux Falls Fitness Festival on Saturday, August 11, from 9 AM to Noon at Riverdale Park (2000 E 24th St.). For early-bird runners, there is also a Blue Move 5K Run/Walk with proceeds helping to fund colonoscopies for the under-served patients at Falls Community Health. Registration for the run/walk begins at 7:45 and the race begins at 8:30 AM.
The Fitness Festival is offering a mind-boggling array of physical activities for everyone, kids and adults, to try out for free. Have you always wanted to know more about, or try, Pilates, pickleball, Tai Chi, cardio-dancing, self-defense practices, yoga, gymnastics, zumba, meditation and more? Do it all this Saturday, August 11, and in-between relax playing bean bags, Jenga and other fun yard games. And again, this is all absolutely free!
