Join The Root for a festivity-filled day of workshops, fitness clinics and more that educate on healthy living and wellness during our inaugural Black, Fit & Healthy Series Family Day on Saturday, May 12, at the Prince George's County Sports and Learning Complex in Landover, Md.

Addressing health, diet and fitness in the black community, the event will feature various panels on weight loss and wellness, as well as fun, cardio-pumping activities such as kickboxing and gymnastics, for the entire family. The Washington Wizard Girls and former Olympic gymnast Dominique Dawes will be on hand to give advice and get people out of their seats. 

For more information on Family Day, including a full list of the day's activities and registration information, please visit The Root's Black, Fit & Healthy Series website
