The Chamber is partnering with the City of Mission Viejo for the annual Oso Fit – Community Health Fair & 5k Fun Run. It is a family friendly event that helps raise money for over 45 non-profit organizations. There’s a 5k fun run for people of all ages, along with a quarter and half mile run for children of all abilities sponsored by the Children’s Cerebral Palsy Movement. We invite you to participate in this event and have several opportunities for you to get involved.
HEALTH FAIR VENDOR
Do not miss this once-a-year opportunity to introduce your products and services to residents of all ages in the Mission Viejo community. This event is sure to draw many participants who are interested in a variety of services related to: Health and Wellness, Fitness, Nutrition and other types of businesses.
To make this event beneficial for all participants, we limit the number of exhibitors promoting similar services. All completed applications received by the deadline will go through a selection process. To apply for this year’s Health Fair send an email to MVHealthFair@cityofmissionviejo.org and request your sponsorship registration form. All forms must be returned to the City by Friday, February 1, 2019 at 5:00pm.
If your business is not in the Health and Wellness market but you’d still like to be involved you can volunteer your time for this event. The Chamber is responsible for the participant registration process and we need your help to make it a success. There are two different days that we are needing volunteers for. The first would be Thursday, February 21st, from 4:00pm-7:30pm at the Norman P. Murray Center. That night we will be handing out t-shirts and racing bibs to pre-registrants. The second day would be on race day, Saturday, February 23rd, from 7:00am-9:00am also at the Norman P. Murray Center. We will be registering runners and handing out t-shirts and racing bibs. If you would like to volunteer for one or both of those days, please send an email to OsoFit5k@missionviejochamber.com.
DONATE A $25 GIFT CARD
Not in the Health and Wellness market and unable to volunteer? We can still use your help and generosity. The Chamber will be giving out awards to the top runners in each age bracket. We are looking for Chamber members able to donate a $25 gift card. Gift cards can be to a local restaurant, retail store, or just a generic $25 Visa/MasterCard type gift card. When awarding your gift card your business will be mentioned as the contributor. This is an easy, low-cost way to get involved in the event and give back to the community. If you would like to donate a $25 gift card please send an email to OsoFit5k@missionviejochamber.com.
Are you a runner? This is a fun run for a great cause. 100% of your pre-registration fee goes to the charity of your choice. There are over 45 local non-profits involved that you can choose from. You can even benefit the Chamber by selecting us as the non-profit your pre-registration fee goes to. To register as a runner, go to www.osofit5k.org.
We hope that you will be able to participate in one or more of these opportunities and that you will join us in making this event a great success and showing our support for the Mission Viejo community.
