Attention, All Boogey Men, Women and Children!
For the second year in a row, THRIVE! Southern Lorain County has signed on to sponsor Wellington’s annual Halloween-themed race and walk: the “Halloween Hustle for a Healthy Heart.”
The fun-filled event will take place on Saturday, October 14, by the Gazebo near the historic Wellington Town Hall. Runners and walkers alike are invited to dress up in spooky costumes (as long as they don’t interfere with movement).
The choice to sponsor the Halloween Hustle was an easy one for the THRIVE! health collaborative, whose mission is to provide affordable opportunities to live healthier through improved nutrition, increased physical activity and informed behavioral health -- all to reduce the risks of obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
The Halloween Hustle provides a great opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to engage in a healthy activity.
THRIVE! will have a table at the event featuring Libby Showalter, M.S., R.D., L.D., who serves as the LIVESTRONG Dietitian for the YMCA of Greater Cleveland. Runners, walkers and onlookers are invited to ask Libby questions related to exercise and nutrition. She will discuss and hand out information on the best pre- and post-exercise foods, proper hydration, how to avoid cramps and other topics.
