Join Us for VIM Fit Fest
VIM Fit Fest is a free community wellness event hosted by The Friends of Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) Clinic in partnership with the City of Stuart happening on Saturday October 23, 2021 from 7 to 11 am at Flagler Park in downtown Stuart. This fun event has three components: a virtual VIM Fit Fest Quest, a 5K Color Run/Walk, and an in-person wellness fair featuring vendors and presentations from local health-related businesses and organizations.
VIM Fit Fest Quest
VIM Fit Fest Quest is a free wellness scavenger hunt using an app, Eventzee, for smart phones. The app allows players to accomplish different challenges and receive points to win a VIM Fit Fest t-shirt and enter the raffle for other prizes. The more points you have the more chances to win! Players can track their progress and see how well they are doing compared to other players. Challenges will include activities like visiting a local park, answering questions about health, getting your blood pressure checked, visiting a fitness center, making a healthy meal, and many more. VIM Fit Fest Quest will kick off on Friday, September 24, 2021 with winners announced at the wellness fair happening on October 23, 2021. Sign up below to be the first to know and get all the details for downloading the app, the quests, and the prizes.
VIM Fit Fest 5k Color Run/Walk
The in-person event will kick off with a 5K Color Run/Walk from Flagler Park through downtown Stuart ending back at Flagler Park. A color run involves running through stations along the race route where volunteers toss colored powder (corn starch and food coloring) onto the runner’s shirt as they pass by. By the end of the race, the runner has a colorful shirt, and often body, which makes for fun pictures and a celebratory feel to the event. Cost is $30 per person until September 30th and $35 after that date. The race is being organized and timed by Mike Melton of MCM Timing and Results.
VIM Fit Fest Wellness Fair
The free wellness fair will feature organizations and businesses from all over Martin County. The event is outside at Flagler Park in Stuart, rain or shine, and a COVID mitigation plan is in place including social distancing, hand sanitizing stations, and recommendations to wear masks. Vendors will include health care providers (physical and mental), fitness instructors, non-profit organizations, and sports clubs. The fair will take place from 8 am – 11 am, immediately following the 5K Color Run/Walk. The event will also feature demonstrations for activities like yoga, Qi Gong, fitness bootcamp, and healthy cooking. The demonstrations will be interactive and guests are welcome to participate along with the instructor. At VIM Fit Fest, guests will learn about the many wonderful services and businesses available to keep you and your family healthy, active, and vibrant. Admission to the fair is free. For more information please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Kimberly at 772-932-5996 X211.
