Community Wellness Day, presented by Anoka-Hennepin Community Education, is free for families at Roosevelt Middle School Jan. 21.
Wellness Day, held annually in January, offers sampler fitness classes, educational wellness seminars and so much more.
This year’s keynote speaker is Jerrid Sebesta, a former KARE-11 meteorologist who now works as a financial planner and motivational speaker.
New this year is a youth gym sponsored by AKA Sports. Kids will be able to participate in archery, floor hockey and soccer at various times.
Snowshoeing was a popular activity at Wellness Day last year when it was offered for the first time. Once again this year, families are encouraged to register online to secure a space for snowshoeing and all other activities, classes and workshops. Walk-in participants are accommodated when possible.
Also returning to Wellness Day are dozens of exhibitors and the popular book and DVD swap, which begins at 11:30 a.m.
Wellness Day activities begin at 9 a.m. at the middle school, 650 125th Ave. NE, Blaine, and run through 1 p.m.
The first 100 attendees receive a free pass to open swim at Roosevelt’s pool from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Jan. 21.
