Meridian Health Services’ City Fit is an event that promotes whole-person health in the city of Richmond, Ind. The purpose of a whole-person health approach is to provide our community with all of the resources needed to live a healthy life. This is accomplished by providing the best physical, mental and social care we can. Richmond is rich in resources, and City Fit is an opportunity to bring them all together in partnership. By doing so, we can better take care of our families, friends, neighbors and overall community.
City Fit events will include a 4K Color Run, Zumba classes, yoga classes, body flow and more. Classes are free to everyone, as participants are able to get a taste of what a fitness class is like without the pressure or expense of a gym. Local agencies also provide information on healthy opportunities within the community. Our booth area will feature local hospitals, mental health centers, chiropractors, herbal healers, gardening groups and more. Participants receive free massages, blood pressure checks, BMI checks, health snacks and water bottles.
Entertainment will be provided by the Pacers Fan Bus with Pacers mascot “Boomer,” the IU East basketball team and radio station G101.3.
