They Came, They Saw and They Accepted the Challenge
The fourth annual Mission Nutrition event, which took place on Saturday, February 19, welcomed over 3800 knowledge seeking health and conscious people. The most up-to-date medical technology was just one of the things Saturday had to offer. A big crowd drew as the NOELLE® birthing simulator, brought in from Seminole State College, gave birth to several “babies” on Saturday to the amazement of all who witnessed it.
Valencia Community College was on hand to provide knowledge on the amounts of sugars in food and show off some their newest technologies. Guests learned about how to keep in shape with advice provided by the YMCA and then traveled over to the Cabot cheese table to sample their tasty low-fat offering.
New to this year’s event, the physical challenge arena was a huge hit. Contests in fun activities with masked health benefits were fun to not only participate in, but to cheer on as well. The hula-hoop contest went on for over 10 exciting minutes and came down to a tie! With Saturday also being a “Waltmart $5 Day,” guests were able to discover so much about health and wellness while saving money! It was another great turn out for the fourth annual Mission Nutrition where everyone walked away inspired to live a healthy lifestyle.
