CLEARFIELD — Davis County Health Department’s Senior Services and Clearfield Aquatic Center will celebrate the 21st Annual National Senior Health & Fitness Day® on Wednesday, May 28. The event is held in support of Older Americans Month and National Physical Fitness and Sports Month.
As an official host site, the Clearfield Aquatic Center is the location for this free event, 8 a.m.-noon. It will include information, healthy ideas, examples, food and drink, prizes, and most of all fun.
Starting at noon, a free lunch will be provided for people 55 years and older who received their participation ticket earlier in the day from one of the booths or activities. The center is adjacent to North Davis Junior High School at 825 S. State Street.
Local seniors will join an estimated 100,000 seniors across the country to help promote active, healthy lifestyles through physical fitness, good nutrition and preventive care.
“Davis County Senior Services helps older adults to live healthier lives through education, physical activity, and opportunities to increase knowledge to manage chronic diseases such as arthritis and diabetes,” said Kristy Cottrell RN, director of DCHD’s Family Health & Senior Services Division. “Partnering with the Clearfield Aquatic Center for this special event provides a venue for older adults to explore these opportunities in a fun environment,” she said.
Businesses interested in participating with free booths are encouraged to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and phone number to be contacted.
