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.
2017 City Fit events included a Color Run, Zumba classes, yoga classes, body flow and more. Classes were free to everyone, as participants were able to get a taste of what a fitness class is like without the pressure or expense of a gym. Local agencies also provided information on healthy opportunities within the community. Our booth area featured local hospitals, mental health centers, chiropractors, herbal healers, gardening groups and more. Participants received free massages, blood pressure checks, BMI checks, healthy snacks and water bottles.
Entertainment was provided by the Pacers Fan Bus, Indiana Fever mascot, “Freddy Fever,” the IU East basketball team and radio station G101.3.
