“Denver” VA’s annual Healthy Living Fair

The Eastern Colorado Health Care System (ECHCS) Health Promotion & Disease Prevention Committee will be hosting our annual Healthy Living Fair, in conjunction with the VA2K, on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at our main campus in Aurora (Rocky Mountain Regional Medical Center).   We welcome booths focused on healthy living, including those related to the 9 Healthy Living Messages (see below), Whole Health, or other topics related to health and wellness.

The target audience for the Fair is both our Veterans and staff, and we strive to have interactive booths when possible.   The exact time of the fair is still TBD, although it will likely be 9-3 (booth set-up ~8 and clean-up finished by 3:30).  Last year we had at least 150 people at our Fair and hope to continue to grow the attendance.

The VA2K is an annual event aimed at promoting physical fitness while honoring our Homeless Veterans Programs.  Although targeted at employees, anyone can participate in the 2K (just over a mile) walk around campus.   Donations to the Homeless Program are accepted, but not required.
