Friday September 21, 2012

Hancock Shaker Village and Berkshire Health Systems are teaming up to present The Health & Wellness Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22, at the Village.

The event will feature talks on health topics ranging from back safety to Vitamin D benefits, a vendor tent with representatives from local wellness-focused organizations, and a blood drive.

Concurrent with The Health & Wellness Fair will be the Hancock Shaker Village 50 Ultramarathon, presented in association with race director Michael Menard, which will be the first-ever ultra running event held in the Berkshires. Registration for the race has closed.

The Health & Wellness Fair is free, and admission to the Village is not required for these activities. Blood drive donors will receive a free pass to the museum. To make an appointment to donate blood, call Lauren at (413) 447-2597, ext. 2.
