The Discover Fitness Foundation is revitalizing the health fair concept with its health fair for the 21st Century! Parents can bring their children for fun activities that will also teach the whole family about taking good care of themselves through exercise and nutrition. Kids may think they’re just playing games, but they’ll be learning about health, wellness, and staying safe at the same time! Children will also get goodie bags that they can stuff with their favorite items from health-minded vendors. Scavenger Hunt GRAND PRIZES include a bicycle and free semesters of tuition at Discover Gymnastics.
