On Tuesday, March 28, Rappahannock Community College’s off-campus site at King George High School will hold a Health, Fitness, and Safety Awareness Day. The purpose of this event, which will run from 5 to 7 p.m. in the school cafeteria, is to educate RCC students, their family and friends, and the public about the importance of maintaining a healthy and safe lifestyle.
Exercise and fitness demonstrations, as well as safety tips, will be provided. The King George and Dahlgren Police Departments will stage real-life safety scenarios. Other presentations will include tai chi, by King George Parks and Recreation; self-defense, by Muhammad’s Martial Arts; Moving to Heal, by Kiwi; and yoga, by Starr Fitness. A dance ensemble from The Studio will perform at 5:30.
The following community organizations will have booths at the event: the American Red Cross, the Dahlgren Child Youth Programs, King George’s Fire and Rescue Department as well as Parks and Recreation, Perfectly Posh (beauty products), Real Time Topical Pain Relief Products, The Studio, Wildtree (a certified clinical nutritionist), Tropical Smoothie, Starbucks, and Hibbett Sports. A donation by the King George Food Lion has helped provide free bottled water, coffee, popcorn, and healthy snacks for all attendees.
RCC’s Health and Wellness class will assist with the event, and the college mascot, Squall the Seagull, will also make an appearance.
