Noblesville Schools, Riverview present Wellness Extravaganza

With the arrival of Spring, now is a perfect time to re-commit to exercise and healthy eating habits. The Noblesville Wellness Extravaganza hopes to help with that.

The public is invited to run, walk, skip or jump to a night of fitness, fun and prizes.

Brian Clarke, the NHS Wellness Department Chair and Strength and Conditioning Coach coordinated the event last year, which drew over 1,000 attendees, and is doing so again this year.

Noblesville Schools, in conjunction with Riverview Hospital, Butler University and Radio Disney, are partnering to bring the extravaganza, which will take place at the Noblesville High School this Thursday, April 21 from 6-8 p.m., to the community.

“Our mission is simple,” Clarke said. “We want to expose families and community stakeholders to many different activities, healthy foods, local health groups and screens, and overall lifestyle opportunities in our schools and community.”

The two hour event will have an array of different physical fitness activities for both kids and adults and healthy snacks available. Local wellness and recreation businesses will be participating, and parents can pick up summer camp information as well.

Butler basketball players will be on hand to meet and sign autographs and Radio Disney will be broadcasting live.

In the fitness regime, try challenges such as the Scooter Triathalon, Fitness Monopoly, Zumba, Ballet and Tap Dancing, a Bounce House and more.

Health professionals will offer BMI, Body Comp and Blood Pressure testing, and Chiropractors will offer information on spinal health.

Door Prize drawings will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the cafeteria. Prizes include Wii Fit, gift certificates, free personal training, free bowling/mini golf, swim lessons, massages and more. You must be present to win.

Noblesville High School is located at 18111 Cumberland Road. Enter through Gate #1, 2, or 18. Contact Brian Clarke at with questions about the event.
