Getting Families Moving at the Wellness Fair

Girl Scouts   Cardio blast session   Tae Kwon Do demonstration

Bringing families together to celebrate and learn about healthy activities, food and community organizations was at the forefront of the Amherst Central School District’s annual family wellness fair.


Organized by the health and physical education departments at ACSD and held at Amherst Middle School, the evening event offered free healthy food samples and a schedule of fitness activity sessions.


In the Amherst Tigers Ninja Warrior Obstacle course, families could test their agility and endurance as they maneuvered through the challenges. Mrs. Withee’s cardio blast session was guaranteed to get the heart rate accelerated. Master Gorino Tae Kwon-Do demonstrated various moves.

Dr. Anthony Costanzo, pediatric specialist with WNY Dental Group provided free oral screenings and demonstrated proper brushing and flossing techniques.


A number of local businesses and community organizations had tables to provide families with information.
