The Ballston Spa Central School District’s Health and Wellness committee will be hosting a Health and Wellness Expo on March 2 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the High School cafeteria and gymnasium. There will be exhibits from each of the school BLTs and a variety of organizations and businesses who will provide information about fitness, healthy eating, bike helmet safety and related health and wellness topics.
Participating exhibitors will include Ballston Spa National Bank, Albany Medical Center, Hannaford Supermarkets, Saratoga Center for the Family, Reality Check, local massage therapists, Reiki practitioners, chiropractors, dentists, orthodontists, yoga instructors, as well as many other health and wellness practitioners.
Expo sponsor Elevate Cycles will be donating 25 refurbished youth bicycles to be raffled off throughout the day. The first 200 elementary and 200 secondary students completing a passport of visiting vendors will receive a goodie bag with related information and giveaways. In addition, many other items will be raffled off throughout the day, including gift cards to local businesses.
The Expo is free and open to all children, families and individuals residing in the Ballston Spa Central School District. Partial funding from the district’s current State Farm Insurance Company grant will be used to support this district-wide community event grounded in financial literacy, and health and wellness.
Participants are asked to please bring a non-perishable food item to donate to district partner Saratoga County EOC, who will be in attendance to provide information about the programs and services they provide to families and individuals throughout Saratoga County.
