Wellness Week comes to the PC MARC
The PC MARC is partnering with local health experts to bring the community its annual Wellness Week. Held April 11 to 15 at the PC MARC, all health education and service programs are free to the public.
"As ski season draws to a close, this is a great opportunity for locals to get better informed about health and wellness for themselves and their families," said Heather Todd, Recreation Coordinator for PC Recreation. "We live in a community in which residents pride themselves on eating healthy and exercising, so our goal is to create a week of programming that nurtures and promotes this lifestyle. Hopefully, people will learn something new about wellness by participating."
The week kicks off with a blood drive on Monday, April 11, from noon to 4 p.m. Stop by the PC MARC to donate some blood that could save a life.
Test your physical fitness and body mass index on Tuesday from noon to 1 p.m.
"What better way to spend your lunch hour than getting better acquainted with your own personal fitness, which will help you set new goals?" Dondea Sherer-Lykes, PC Recreation’s Wellness Coordinator, commented.
Wednesday’s main event is a Free Lunchtime Learning session at noon led by Executive Coach Dr. Sunnie Giles. She will discuss effective leadership in today’s increasingly complex business environment and share which competencies make an effective leader and improve employee engagement and morale.
Wellness Week programming concludes with a Health Awareness Fair on Thursday from noon to 2 p.m. Local companies that focus on health and wellness will have representatives on hand to answer questions and provide useful information that relates to wellness.
Park City Medical Center’s Live Well Center is just one of the organizations that will have a presence.
"We will have a nutrition education display, a fun game where people can enter to win a free Bod Pod Body comp service," said Dee Hill-Mey, Manager of the Live Well Center, which is a community resource for health promotion, disease prevention, as well as sports performance enhancement and measurement. "We are also offering a discount to MARC members for our Bod Pod service, which offers an easy way to get an accurate measure of body composition and monitor changes over time."

This season, the Miners are led by a quartet of seniors who combine to shine on and off the court. According to head coach Matt Carlson, the seniors are the heartbeat of the team and have led the charge for Park City’s jump to Class 5A.
