Learn about the incredible array of health options available to foothill residents at the free Family Fit N Fun healthy lifestyle expo on Sunday, June 22 at High Hill Ranch, 2901 High Hill Road in Camino. The fourth annual event is from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and offers many alternatives to creating a stronger, more vigorous you — both inside and out.
“Exercise and movement improves all functions of the body, which is meant to be active. Exercise not only helps a body feel stronger, but a person’s thoughts will become clearer and more focused,” said Erin Davidson, a Nia movement instructor who will be at the expo. Exercise is a great way to relieve stress and it makes the body look and feel healthier, Davidson said.
Participants at the expo will be presented with activities that can be done throughout one’s life. This is an opportunity to see, hear, taste, smell and move to all kinds of experiences.
Learn all about local life coaches, massage therapists, karate and tai chi instructors, energy practitioners, chiropractors, nutrition consultants and more.
Delicious foods and demonstrations will be offered in a family atmosphere while grooving to the music provided by area favorites Late for Dinner.
One of the new features at this year’s expo is an interactive children’s area featuring face-painting, hula-hooping and juggling to keep the kids moving.
The lifestyle expo is the vision of Dr. June Scofield of Mother Lode Chiropractic Center and Foothills Health and Wellness Network. After 32 years in the community, she recently retired to Mendocino, but Family Fit N Fun continues on.
“Dr. Scofield was committed to healthy families and that commitment will live on through this event,” said event coordinator Dave Hamblin, a registered ortho-bionomy practitioner and musician in Late for Dinner.
Participating food and beverage businesses include: Sierra Rizing, Crystal Basin Bistro, Placerville Natural Foods Co-op, Two Cooks on Main, Sierra Banquet Center, Barsotti Juices, Old Hangtown Brew Works and Findleton Estate Winery.
All juice, beer and wine sales and raffle proceeds will benefit Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
