CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (July 2013) – Ivy Publications, the publishers of CharlottesvilleFamily and the Charlottesville Welcome Book, is pleased to present the Get Healthy! Get Active! Festival to celebrate and benefit the 20th anniversary of the Women’s Four Miler Training Program. The brand new festival – set for Sunday, August 18 from 11am-4pm at the Boar’s Head Inn Conference Center – features live music, door prizes, tastings, talks, kid’s activities and more!

This interactive event provides a truly unique opportunity for attendees to visit with area health care practices. Visitors will enjoy delicious food tastings, dance to funkalicious samba soul music by Beleza, do Zumba and get great health and fitness tips from UVA Health System, The Little Gym and more. Kids will enjoy sports games, The Little Gym tumbling mats and other fun activities.

As long time supporters of the Women’s Four Miler Training Program, Ivy Publications is excited to donate 10% of all event proceeds to this very worthy cause that has helped thousands of women get healthy and get active.
