Commit to be Fit: Health Around the World

 Saturday May 11th, 12-2 PM

One of our signature events is Commit to be Fit, a Healthy Lifestyle Fair for Yamhill County. We work with classes from Linfield College as well as McMinnville Parks & Recreation to host this fun weekend event. The SNACK Program helps kids and families practice healthy lifestyles. One of the ways we do this is by reducing families’ barriers to healthy activities – including fees for playing sports or exercise classes.

This year, the theme for Commit to be Fit is focused on exploring the world's healthiest and longest-living communities. You'll receive a Passport to Health Around the World to visit booths that will be offering health and wellness information and activities. 

Commit to be Fit is a traditional health fair in that we bring together community health organizations and resources and offer free health screenings for participants — but we add to the energy of the day by inviting local fitness instructors and coaches to host short classes throughout the afternoon. Importantly – these offerings are all provided at no cost to folks who attend.

Interested in attending Commit to be Fit this year?
