Fabruary 6, 2020

NORTON, Kan. – The Norton Regional Health Foundation and Live Well Norton would like to celebrate health with the public in a wellness day on Saturday, March 14. The third annual “Kicks on the Bricks” event will be hosted at East Campus Gym in Norton, with registration starting at 9:15 a.m. and activities beginning at 10 a.m. All ages are welcome to participate.

Many healthy activities will be offered in 30-minute rotations, which give people a chance to try out different forms of exercise. Activities will include yoga and Zumba classes, a walk/run on the bricks (weather permitting), a strength and conditioning session, and nutrition education. The Norton Lions Club and Kansas Lions Sight Foundation, with the help of local nurses and nursing student volunteers from Colby Community College, will be providing free health screenings – including blood pressure, blood sugar, visual acuity, field of vision and hearing – in the East Campus parking lot.

Participants will be provided a punch card at registration, and those who complete the card will be eligible for many prizes! Prizes awarded in years past have included gym memberships, free exercise classes, wireless earbuds, an electric toothbrush, gift baskets, gift cards and a DNA testing kit, as examples.

Advance entries guarantee a participant prize. The advance entry deadline is March 5. After March 5, participants may still register, and remaining prizes will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Cost is $10 per participant. Registration forms can be found on the Foundation tab of the Norton County Hospital website. Printed copies of the registration form are also located at Norton County Hospital and Norton Medical Clinic entrances. Forms should be returned in person at Norton County Hospital (ask for Katie Allen) or mailed to: Katie Allen, Norton County Hospital, Attn: Wellness Day, P.O. Box 250, Norton, KS 67654.
