We are excited to announce the First Annual Conejo Valley Fitness Fair on Sunday May 27th, 2012 from 8am to 5pm. The Fair will be held on Triunfo Canyon Rd. near the Hampshire Road intersection in Westlake Village, California. The Fair hopes to bring recognition to the growing issue of Child Obesity here in the United States. We anticipate over 100 firms offering healthy alternatives to families to display their products and services, offer samples, and give demonstrations. The Fair hopes to show parents that they have a healthier choice for their family within the Conejo Valley. There will be many kid's activities, including bicycle riding on a closed course, inflatable bounce houses, face painting, fitness class demonstrations, balloons, and music.
The Fair intends to donate most of the proceeds from the booths and activities to www.mykidhealthy.org, a charity promoting healthy lifestyles for families.
The Fair is being held in conjunction with a popular Southern California Bicycle Race "The Barry Wolfe Grand Prix." This race attracts over 1000 racers and their families, and it's considered one of the most prestigious races on the calendar in the Western US. The race course will be around the Fair area, covering Hampshire and Townsgate Roads. This will bring an air of colorful excitement to the Fair, as racers fly around course in different race categories throughout the day. Bicycle manufacturers, shops and service providers will be on hand with the latest in bicycles and cycling technology. Kids will be able to try competitive cycling on a closed course with bikes provided by local shops.
Fair Organizers Paul Bryan and Joe Buchanan are both avid cyclists and supporters of healthy lifestyles. Joe commented: "As a Dad of 8 and 11 year old boys, I have come to realize that we really don't understand where the better choices can be found. We always opt for convenience, and that is not always the healthy choice." Paul feels the same way: "When it comes to doing things as a family, we don't want to always hop in the car and drive somewhere to exercise together. We believe the Fair will highlight activities we can do close to home or locally that are both fun and healthy."
If you would like to participate in the Fair on any level, contact Joe Buchanan at email@example.com or by phone 805-728-5424.
