Okanagan Similkameen Healthy Living Fair Society directors and MLA Dan Ashton joined forces this week to draw attention to health focused events.
The three, who met up at Ashton's Penticton office, donned purple wristbands to draw attention to the provincially organized Eating Disorders Awareness week, taking place in February.
The campaign is also a tie-in to the 2014 Healthy Living Fair's theme of "Celebrating Health."
The fair slated for March 8 at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre is designed to connect large numbers of people with commercial, nonprofit and professional providers of services that support a healthy lifestyle.
The free event will include keynote speaker Joy McCarthy, activity demos, healthy eating sessions, family entertainment, over 45 different organizations and various health assessment stations, in which the general public will receive one on one reviews and information related to their inquiries.
