Helping others while helping yourself

Vernon fitness studio opens doors to a fundraiser for Transition House

We can all play a part in keeping ourselves and our community healthy by making healthy lifestyle choices and giving support to those in need in our community.

As part of an ongoing commitment to the health of families and individuals in Vernon, Hayden Fitness is hosting an open house on Tuesday from 1 – 4 p.m. in support of Transition House’s “Stock the Pantry” campaign. The open house marks the start of a month-long drive to collect non-perishable food items to help Transition House provide three meals a day to up to 25 clients.

The open house provides an opportunity to help your community by bringing a donation of non-perishable food items to help the women and children at Transition House, to have some fun and to help yourself by learning about opportunities to improve your health and fitness. If the prospect of door prizes, healthy goodies, special offers and previews of new products and services are not enough to tempt you to visit the open house, there is the added incentive of the opportunity to meet and mingle with many of the health and fitness professionals who work in conjunction with Hayden Fitness, including fitness professionals Marie Hayden, Rose Harryman and Laura May; naturopathic physician Dr. Nicole Shortt; chiropractor Dr. Elliot; doula and Lamaze instructor Emma Wheeler.

Hayden Fitness is at #203-3403 30th Ave., downtown Vernon.Drop in any time between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Tuesday and bring your family and friends, leave a donation for Transition House and go home with new knowledge and new plans for a healthier future.
