Mar. 31, 2011 @ 02:30 PM

HUNTINGTON — The Huntington Health Revolution is sponsoring a Healthy Day in Huntington to culminate the end of the 90 Day Challenge on Saturday, April 2.

The day begins with a 5K walk/race that will begin behind Pullman Square at 9 a.m.  A Healthy Food Festival will begin at 10 a.m. and run until 2 p.m.  The Food Festival will be held in the 900 block of Third Avenue and in Pullman Square.

The 90-Day Challenge began on Jan. 2 with the goal of helping people to take small steps to a healthier lifestyle. There were suggestions each week for an individual to incorporate healthy eating, physical activity, and something for the spirit.

The Healthy Day in Huntington will be an opportunity for the community to come together to celebrate a healthy lifestyle.  The race is open to anyone who is open to the public. 

You do not have to have participated in the 90-Day Challenge to walk or run in the race.  Registration for the race is $20.  Net proceeds for the day will go toward the Paul Ambrose Trail for Health.

The Food Festival is for everyone, young and old.  There will be healthy food to sample or buy; fitness, martial arts, and cooking demonstrations.  There will also be a Zumba class for anyone who wants to Zumba.  A Kid's Fun Run will be held around 10  a.m.
