Time for health and wellness

Two events kick off spring in Harrison Hot Springs

For many, spring is a time of renewal and rejuvenation.

It’s also the perfect time to learn more about health and how to incorporate it into your daily life. The Harrison Hot Springs Health and Wellness Fair is being held March 29, in the Harrison Memorial Hall.

It will feature booths with information from local community services and clubs, as well as professionals who will be on hand to answer questions. Others will also be offering services such as massages.

The fair will include information on food, nutrition, fitness and fun, and runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

The third annual Walk/Run for Heritage will be running in conjunction with the Health and Wellness Fair this year.

The Walk/Run starts across the street from Memorial Hall, and works its way around Harrison back to the hall. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., with the runners and walkers departing at 9 a.m.

The Walk/Run for Heritage raises money for the Agassiz Harrison Historical Society and Museum, and the Kilby Historic Site in Harrison Mills. The previous two years, the event was held in Agassiz.

Registration for the Walk/Run is $25 per person, or $50 for a family (two adults and two children).
