Building on the success of last year’s event, Hebni Nutrition, will host its 2nd annual “Wobble for the Win” health and wellness awareness event on Saturday, April 11, 2020, at historic Tinker Field in Orlando. The free event is designed to resemble a 5K race, but instead of running, participants will be treated to fun, family dance event to promote the benefits associated with movement through exercise.
“We know that by incorporating small amounts of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity can transform lives and reduce the risk of chronic diseases and other conditions that often are more common or severe among racial and ethnic minority groups,” says Glen R. Providence, Executive Director of Hebni Nutrition. “Not everyone can run a 5K race but the majority of people, in our way special can dance”, continued Providence. Prizes will be awarded throughout the event in various categories including the group with the most participants and the oldest/youngest participants. Participants can register individually or as a team using the event’s page.
Organizations including schools, churches, sororities, and fraternities are encouraged to register. The event will have wellness screenings, family games. cooking and gardening demonstrations, healthy food trucks, a food drive giveaway, and an Easter Egg hunt. Registration information can be found on Hebni’s website, social media pages, and Eventbrite.
