Women of all ages gathered today in Camp Hill for the 7th Annual Day of Dance.
Using the power of dance as inspiration, Holy Spirit Health System hosts the event to encourage more exercise by women in our area.Studies show that heart disease has killed twice as many women over the age of 25, as any other type of disease, including breast cancer.
Day of Dance teaches a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise. Attendees could also receive free health screenings.
“This community outreach… We get to touch the lives of the people in Central Pennsylvania by bringing them here together for this event and it’s our opportunity while they’re here to educate them about heart health awareness and getting that exercise in everyday.” Megan Atticks, Spirit of Women Coordinator
The Spirit of Women Day of Dance is also held in more than 80 cities across the nation today, with the same goal, TO EDUCATE WOMEN ABOUT HEALTH.
