Get Fit Selma 2021

Get Fit Selma 2021

Oct 16th 20211pm-3:30pm

After over a year of silence the Get Fit Selma! Health & Fitness Festival (GFS!) is BACK! Hoping to provide experiences for Selmians of all ages that challenge their engagement in their own health and wellness. But all these things need funding.

This year we will have three special guests again:

1. Ms. Ellen McKnight, Principal at The Maxine Firm, to be a featured presenter at our Health & Vendor Fair. Ms. McKnight is a nutrition and wellness expert focused on preventing chronic diseases directly related to nutrition practices.

2. Retired players from the Alabama Chapter of the NFL Players Association will be joining GFS! as Celebrities for the 5K and will be tabling and talking to youth who attend about their personal fitness regimen.

3. Michelle and Sean Clark, Double Dutch Aerobics, an updated version of the playground competitions of the 70s and 80s.

4. The GFS! Planning Committee would like to provide Bubble Soccer for the Let’s Move Kids! Challenge activities, which will add to our expenses but will attract a more diverse audience to our health event. That could cost $800 – but Selma’s children are worth it.

Get Fit Selma! 2021 will be held from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm, including the BOSS Tournament, on Saturday, October 16, 2021 at the NEW McRae-Gaines Learning Center (MGLC), 1101 Woodrow Avenue, Selma AL 36701. The Festival closes with the BOSS Youth League’s Basketball Tournament from 1:00 to 3:30 pm for the 4th year in a row. The BOSS Youth League Program develops youth in Selma and Montgomery through the game of basketball by emphasizing academics, discipline, dedication, and entrepreneurship. Entry is free for all of the activities with exception of the running events although sponsorships are available for those. There is also a small charge for lunch to defray costs.
