Health and wellness fair on tap in Kent
A health and wellness fair will be held Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Kent. The fair, Keep Eating Nutritious Day (KENT), is coordinated by Marie Roze, co-owner of Davis IGA, and Dr. Marilyn Gansel, owner of Fitness Matters and a holistic lifestyle coach.
Festivities will kick off with a health walk, led by Dr. Gansel and Dimples the Clown, starting at IGA on Kent Green, continuing through town and ending back at the IGA.
A variety of offerings, including demonstrations and health screenings, will be held after the walk.
Activities from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside IGA will include entertainment and balloon tricks with Dimples; $10 therapeutic massages with Sylvia Castro; free blood pressure and diabetes screenings, and body fat and body mass index analysis; and demonstrations of Arbonne skin products, cosmetics and nutritional line.
Children are invited to participate in a jump rope contest at noon.
Raffles will be offered to win a child's bike, sponsored by the IGA, and to win a one-hour personal training session with Dr. Gansel.
T-shirt advertising will be available for $5, with donations to benefit the Kent Community Fund.
Donations of canned goods will benefit the Kent Food Bank.
