I am very excited to announce that we have been able to secure the date of October 24,2012 for the inaugaral event for Ignite Health. This is TRULY the ideal location. They hosted the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution event last May and because there are lots of local food vendors at this market I want to bring people to them and this is a Win/Win relationship! I will make sure everyone is wearing a name tag so that we have a chance to connect names with faces of those we might not have met in the community before!
The event will run from 6 pm – 9pm We will have some healthy snacks and beverages available for participants.
We will accept up to 200 attendees and the event will be set up on EventBrite where you will need to book your tickets quickly!
We will start the evening off with a physical or spiritual challenge for teams to enjoy and then settle in for some amazing speakers.
You will enjoy 2 presenters in each of the following categories:
Food – I will share details of the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Ambassador program. We will have a nutritionist sharing a few great ideas for healthy eating!
Exercise – Have you considered the Hula Hoop for a great workout? We will have an exciting presentation and challenge for attendees. I will also make sure we have a great personal trainer provide some getting started tips for those new to exercise!
Mental Health – We are looking to secure a puppet presentation for Anxiety, and a great speaker to raise awareness on mental illness in our community.
Spiritual – Are you aware of Shamanism for dealing with illness from a spiritual perspective, Deep Breathing and Yoga will be the other focus I am looking to have presented.
Patient Stories- A positive approach to Cancer from an inspirational lady and another strong woman to share her battle with Depression!
Practitioners – We will introduce you to Reiki with a demonstration with 2 amazing ladies. We are looking for another practioner to share their skills and I am considering a number of ideas!
After 6 presentations I will break this event up for 20 minutes for you to enjoy a snack , take a break and an opportunity to speak with the first 6 presenters.
We will come back for the second half presenters and you will have a chance afterward to go into the Labatt Room to get more information from all the speakers and a chance to talk to them.
