Fit-4-Fun is a celebration of North Side health and wellness 

Join your North Minneapolis neighbors in a day of fun and fitness at the fourth annual Fit-4-Fun event, Saturday, September 12, from 9 2 p.m., at NorthPoint Health & Wellness, 1313 Penn Avenue North, Minneapolis.

As a celebration of healthy living, this event encourages participants to take a family-friendly1- or 3-mile walk or run, or a bicycle tour through North Side neighborhoods, guided by the Major Taylor Cycling Club. Participants can try aerobic exercises, line dancing, Zumba and other activities to get their feet moving and their hearts pumping. For the younger set, there will be a Kids Run. There will also be music, prizes and healthy food options.

NorthPoint will distribute health and wellness information and most important, provide a setting where everyone can have fun.
