Wellness Day & Coupon Codes

I have to admit I am a little bit behind on this post, about 2 weeks behind in fact, but better late than never? It took me a while to get all the pictures together and my ducks in a row but I wanted to make sure this post still got up.  So here it goes...

For the past six months, I have been working on an event for my Temple's Sisterhood.  It started out small and conservative.  But like most things I do, it got BIG fast!  Before I knew it, the idea of a Wellness Fair went from a simple Sunday afternoon with members of the Sisterhood to inviting anyone and everyone and having almost 50 sponsors!  How did this happen?  Easy, I am a runner and when someone suggested the idea of having a few wellness speakers come in, I immediately thought, why not make this like a race expo?  And the rest was history...

The goodies just kept rolling in...

Before I knew it, we had an awesome swag bag valuing over $200 with $100 for Accelerated Fitness, two weeks free pilates and yoga at Endurance Pilates and Yoga, samples from Pretzels Crisps and Pop Chips, an Everstride Anti-Chafe Stick, 10% Tommie Copper gear, discounts on Bondi Bands, 3 Sessions as One2One Body Scapes, and more!!  It got pretty intense.

There were 100 bags to pack!
But the bags are packed!

And we are ready to go!

Besides the bags, the vendors started to appear too (well, appear meaning I was, like Aaron likes to say, "adorably persusasive").  By the time the day arrived, we had so many different vendors including  Indulgence Day Spa and Philip Ciampa Salon, Eastern Sun Acupuncture, Whole Foods Market Woburn, personal trainers from Form and Center Fitness, Mui Chiropractor & Wellness Center, yoga instructor from Yoga by the Green, Fitness Centers like Gymnasium and more!


So two Sundays ago, the big day, the day I had planned for so long arrived!  From 1-4p.m. on January 8th, the Wellness Day went off without a hitch.  We had over 200 people come and participate.  They received a free Swag Bag, got to enjoy free massages, sample nutritious items from Pretzel Crisps, Whole Foods,  Pop Chips, and Stonyfield Farms, and hear from all different speakers.  They also got the chance to win items from CEP Compression, Road ID, Bondi Band, SugoiCode Blue, Vitalsox, Greater Boston Running Company, Juice Plus+, and more.  Finally, there were nurses taking blood pressure, Physical Therapists doing balance tests, and mid-wives discussing birthing and other topics. It was pretty fantastic.



The day went by quick but it seemed like everyone had a great time.  It personally left me exhausted for oh a good two weeks, I am still recuperating (thus the very long time it took to post this post).

But now that the dust has settled I am taking a step back and enjoy some freedom.  The Wellness Day was tons of fun but it was tons of work and I am enjoying, hopefully, a few weeks of rest and recuperation.

Until the next big event,  I may or may not be agreeing to work on a big blogger meet up for the Boston Marathon, I am sure some of these sponsors would be game right guys? :)

  In the meantime,  we still have some awesome things for you all, even if you could not be at the event.  

  • Go to EverStride and use FunRun as a coupon code to get 25%
  • Go to BondiBand and use RunforFun as a coupon code to get 10%
  • Go to VitalSox and use RS1BL1TS to get $10
All of these products are amazing and worth adding to your list of "must haves"

I just want to take a chance now to thank all of our sponsors for the Wellness Day.  I could not have done it without them.  They have been nothing short of amazing and they are worth checking it out for sure! I can't wait to work with them again!

Happy Monday folks!  Have you ever planned a big event?  Would you be up for a big blogger/reader Boston Marathon meetup?
