Women athletes wanted

Jen Watkins, Of the Record staff

The Women’s Center for Spirituality is looking for women athletes to be part of a health expo and craft fair being held on Sept. 26 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Park City.

Director Cheryl Popple said the center is putting together this year’s health expo to help promote healthy lifestyles.

"We’re trying to bring together women of one event that could answer questions about healthy lifestyles, activities and health concerns," she said.

The center is hoping that, by including women athletes in the expo, they can answer questions others may have about what it takes to live healthy every day. Popple said athletes are respected in the community and provide good role models.

The health expo will also feature a craft fair by local women, she said. Popple said she is inviting women who have their own business to participate in the event. She said many women who have home businesses don’t have the money for advertising and this event will be a good marketing tool.

"The craft fair is intended to allow women who have a home-type or smaller business to have a little exposure," she said.

Popple said the event is still in the planning stages. There is no fee to participate in the health expo; however, there is a small fee for vendors who will be selling that day. The event is free to the public and open to men, women and children. She said there will be many activities for children.

Popple said she hopes each of those attending the event will bring a can of food. The center’s goal is to collect 1,000 cans to donate to the food pantries at St. Mary Catholic Church’s and the Christian Center.
