Day of Dance events aim to create healthier communities
For nearly a decade, Spirit of Women hospitals across the country have been joining together to take a stand against heart disease through Day of Dance. This free event will combine the fun of dancing to different kinds of music with health screenings and consumer education on heart disease and other important health topics.
Nationwide, more than 75,000 people are expected to dance and learn simple ways to stay healthy in the hopes of creating healthier communities.
“Day of Dance not only increases awareness of cardiovascular disease and its risk factors, but inspires immediate action for better health in all areas,” said Kris Howard, manager of the Spirit of Women program at NCMC. Doctors, medical professionals, community businesses and others will come together to fall in love with health through dance, health screenings, community and fun.
“Women, men and their families will learn about healthy choices they can easily incorporate into their lifestyles as well as find out their personal warning signs and risk factors for heart disease and stroke,” Howard said.
The event is Saturday, Feb. 26 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Greeley Family FunPlex, 1501 65th Ave. The event will provide activities and screenings to remind participants that preventing cardiovascular disease and a healthy lifestyle can be a fun and energizing experience.
