Annual Health and Wellness Fair Biggest, Best Yet

Springmoor’s Annual Health and Wellness Fair, last Thursday, was perhaps bigger and better than any in years past. Typically held in the Auditorium, this year’s twenty five vendors, as well as the over 200 staff and resident participants, easily filled up that space and the Great Room too!

At each entrance to the Health and Wellness Fair, residents and staff were greeted with a list of all twenty five participating vendors. In scavenger hunt fashion, participants were encouraged to visit at least fifteen of the vendors’ booths, have the representative mark their lists, and once completed, turn them in for a chance to win a prize. So, during the process of qualifying for the prize, participants learned a lot about health and wellness resources at Springmoor and throughout the Triangle area. Various other door prizes were announced throughout the day.

As if the opportunity to win great prizes wasn’t enticing enough, Health and Wellness Fair participants were also welcome to take part in a variety of health screenings and wellness services for free. The massages were a popular attraction, as well as the blood pressure, blood glucose, and bone density screenings. The healthy spread of snacks and various literature packets available at each of the vendors’ booths were popular with the crowd as well.
