The goal of the Umoja Fest Community Fitness Challenge is to provide exciting and informative activities that promotes healthy lifestyles to the community. Featuring great activities such as the Austin Foundation Fitness Passport Station, Zuumba in the Park and more.
The challenge is an opportunity for people to get the tools and motivation they needed to begin or enhance an exercise program and improved diet.
Aligned with the City of Seattle efforts to support First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign to to combat childhood obesity, the fitness challenge will include a variety of dynamic fitness demonstrations ranging from calisthenics to cultural dance to martial arts. Additionally the community wellness fair will feature a variety of community based resources to assist with making healthier lifestyle choices. As obesity, diabetes, cancer, and other health ailments continue to plague the African American community at disproportionate rates, we want to ensure that the Umoja Fest event is a platform for promotion the health and well being.
