Enjoy a day of fitness and fun at the Fifth Annual Fit4Fun at NorthPoint Health & Wellness Center, 1313 Penn Ave. N, Minneapolis.
This free family event is packed with activities that will help individuals move, and learn while connecting with community. More than a fitness event, this year’s theme is food justice, highlighting the ways food impacts well-being through interactive educational stations.
Organizers say people practicing food justice leads to a strong local food system, self-reliant communities and a healthy environment. Food justice is built on three pillars – food availability, food access and food use.
The event takes place on Sept. 17 with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. and a run and walk (one mile or three mile) happening at 10:15 a.m. and a bike ride at 10:30 a.m. A kids’ run begins at 11:30 a.m.
Cooking demonstrations will take place and there will be health screenings for blood pressure, dental screenings, body mass index, diabetes risk assessments and more. Fitness activities include Zumba, jump rope, hop scotch, hula hooping and hip-hop aerobics.
