Fit And Well Idaho: The Expo


By Brittany Cooper

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The Fit and Well Idaho Expo is just a day away. The event promises to be full of activities and information for the entire family, including the family dog.

Has Fido had the urge to go on a run? The YMCA has you covered with the Fast and the Furriest run taking place Saturday morning.

"The YMCA really wants to be community involved and we decided to help the city of twin falls raise funds for the dog park because the community really needs a dog park and it's really healthy for people to have pets," explains Donna Cleland of the Twin Falls YMCA.

For the price of $20, you and your pet will be to participate, plus you'll receive a t–shirt. It's the paws for a cause more or less.

Cleland adds, "you can run but you can walk also and it's just a fun and healthy exercise."

Then stick around for the Fit and Well Idaho Expo. St. Luke's is zoning in on stroke and skin cancer prevention.

"Because tomorrow is going to be a really hot day folks, plus we also are going to have a fun physical activity that's a surprise so you'll just have to come out and check it out," adds Laura Stewart of St. Luke's Magic Valley.

With a first ever event, the element of surprise usually comes with the territory.
