Equestrian Trails Health Fair A Success

Equestrian Trails Elementary School hosted its health fair Thursday, Feb. 5. The event was organized by the Wellness Committee, which is comprised of students, teachers and parents.

More than 30 vendors were on hand, including national organizations such as the American Red Cross and the Epilepsy Foundation, and local doctors such as orthodontists, ophthalmologists and chiropractors. Physical activity programs led demonstrations.

Families were also invited to sample many different healthy foods, such as vegetables, fruits, smoothies, trail mix, hummus and more. The event brought in more than 100 students and their families. In the future, the school hopes have these vendors return and to increase community involvement.
