The 4th of July may be over but the summer is still full of fun events that everyone can look forward to. One such event is the 2014 “Fit and Fun Fest” taking place on Saturday, July 12th at the Clermont County Board of DD’s Wildey Center located in Batavia. The day-long event includes a 5K race at 9am as well as an awards presentation, demonstration classes in Zumba, Aerobics and Yoga and an exhibitor fair. The “Fit and Fun Fest” is being held to raise funds for Clermont DD Empowers Me, a non-profit dedicated to enriching the lives of people with disabilities served through the Clermont County Board of Developmental Disabilities. Ohio Valley Goodwill is excited to not only be an exhibitor for the 2014 event but also, a race participant. Goodwill team members Sharon Hannon, Marketing Specialist and Paula Smith, Eastside Supervisor, will both be on hand to meet with event participants and join in all of the festivities.
Ohio Valley Goodwill works in partnership with the Board in providing work training services to more than 25 adults through its Vocational Services Center located in Batavia. The most recent in the organization’s program additions, Goodwill’s Eastside Vocational Center is preparing to grow again as the needs of both Clermont and Hamilton County residents continues to increase. The Vocational Center which is located on Grissom Drive in Batavia will soon be expanding into new space on the same property which will then enable the program to serve more people.
“We are certainly looking forward to being part of the 2014 Fit and Fun Fest,” said Paula Smith, Eastside Supervisor. “The best part is that everyone can join us.” To participate in the 5K race, visit www.runningtime.net and register.
