The Working for Whitewater’s Wellness coalition’s 3rd annual Wellfest will be on Sun. Mar. 9, noon-3pm, at Whitewater High School. It’s free!
There’s something here for everyone! Choose from boot camp, Zumba, Pickleball, sports activities provided by UW-Whitewater athletes, healthy cooking demos with the Black Sheep Restaurant, health screenings, a resource fair, and a chance to become CPR/AED certified (Participants must register by March 7 by emailing email@example.com for that!). See the web site for details about times and locations of events. Pickleball, for example, is only offered during the first session (12:20-1pm). There will be a raffle for prizes including a signed Packer football, t-shirts, gift cards, bike helmets, and more.
