Good healthy summer fun

 |  11/14/07 @ 6:47pm

As the weather warms up around Northeast Ohio, it is time to get off the couch, go outside, and feel happy, healthy, and energized. On Saturday, June 30 three exciting fun and fit activities are happening in the area.

The first is the Near West Health Walk, a part of the Steps to a Healthier Cleveland, which aims to educate and engage Clevelanders regarding health and wellness. The day begins at 9 a.m. with a fun one-mile walk that ends at Market Square, on the corner of W. 25th and Lorain Ave. in Ohio City. Once participants arrive, they can refresh and reenergize with food and drink samples, wellness screening, music, and dance. Participants will have the opportunity to view Morgan Spurlock's incredible film, Super Size Me. This is a great event for the whole family.

Another exciting family-fun event is the Tremont Farmers Market and outdoor yoga session. As you browse the market for healthy, local produce, Marcia Camino, R.Y.T., will be offering free yoga mini-sessions/demonstrations under a tent in the cool morning grass from 8:30-10. If you have ever wanted to try yoga and just haven't had the time, this is a great time to try! The yoga is for all levels and ages and is a great confidence building activity.

If you are looking for super energetic all-day fun, look no further than Play Until Dark at Wendy Park. Located on Whiskey Island, Wendy Park is the site of the first Annual Sports and Recreation Festival. Try your hand at a dozen different activities including kayaking & canoeing, windsurfing, geocaching, hiking, biking, rock wall climbing, fishing, rowing, golf swing analysis and more! Remember have a blast and wear sunscreen!!
