Healthy Oxford with Sponsors

Join your friends and neighbors for a family-friendly, free, fun, community-focused wellness event.

Sunday, May 17, 2015
The Oxford Square and Lafayette County Courthouse Lawn
HealthyOxford’s Community Wellness Day
(presented by RebelWell and Baptist Memorial Hospital North MS)

With a special focus on nutrition education, physical activity and work/life balance, Community Wellness Day will kick off with a 1 mile family friendly fun walk and offer several fun-filled hours of learning and sampling a mix of local wellness opportunities and healthy foods. You’ll enjoy give-a-ways, free tastings of nutritional foods by some of Oxford’s favorite chefs, learn more about and maybe even sample various forms of physical activity, speak to local wellness providers, grab a quick chair massage and visit with friends and neighbors in a laid-back setting that is reminiscent of a simpler time. Finding the right work-life balance is an important part of overall wellness and a day with family and friends is just what the doc would order. Put on your walking shoes, join us in May and make the launch of HealthyOxford and Oxford’s first Community Wellness Day a success.
