It’s time for the 4th Annual Staying Alive event in Southlake! This is also our second year to partner with LiveFit Southlake. LiveFit Southlake, is a 10-week community wellness challenge that will help you and your family get fit together!
The City of Southlake’s Staying Alive event, in partnership with the American Heart Association, is aimed at not only teaching hands-only CPR, but also providing Southlake families with opportunities to learn more about heart health, nutrition, and ways to stay fit.
There will be lots of fun activities for everyone. Parents and kids can run an obstacle course, participate in Zumba classes, get child passenger safety seat checks, learn hands-only CPR as well as self-defense tips for women and so much more. Participants who are registered for LiveFit Southlake can receive up to 10 points in the wellness challenge for participating in classes and events. You can learn more about LiveFit Southlake at LiveFitSLK.com.
Heart health and overall wellness are both issues Southlake Mayor, Laura Hill, feels strongly about. Mayor Hill says, “In our fast-paced world, staying healthy and fit is more important than ever. I feel strongly that this wellness challenge will help families get healthy together. It’s fun and easy and it will give us all a chance to LiveFit together.”
Need more reasons to join us on February 11?
CPR saves lives. Knowing CPR and how to protect yourself can save lives. Did you know that effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival, but only 32% of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander?
We hope that you and your family will join us for this community-wide event to learn about health and safety and have fun learning together!
