Kansas City Kansas Community College’s Wellness & Fitness Center is hosting a “Have a Heart Healthy Valentine’s Day event.

Kansas City Kansas Community College’s Wellness & Fitness Center is hosting a “Have a Heart Healthy Valentine’s Day event.

“Have a Heart Healthy Valentine’s Day” will be 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 14 at the Wellness & Fitness Center on the KCKCC main campus, 7250 State Ave. There will be two stationary bicycles reserved for the event. Both bicycles will be open throughout the day for whoever wants to participate in the Heart Healthy Challenge.

People who would like to participate are asked to sign-up at the Wellness Center for a pre-determined, 30-minute time slot to ride that day. The goal is to complete 15 hours of cardiovascular exercise during the event as well as to encourage KCKCC employees, students and community members to team up in an attempt to ride the most miles and expend the most calories on Valentine’s Day.

Participants are asked to ride for their entire 30-minute time slot and cannot go over into a second 30-minute slot. If they complete the full 30 minutes, they are entered into a drawing. Four to six prizes will be awarded.

Pam Hall, wellness specialist at the KCKCC Wellness & Fitness Center, said the purpose of “Have a Heart Healthy Valentine’s Day” is to encourage cardiovascular exercise as a way to promote a healthier way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. She said she would like to see every 30-minute time slot filled.

“I started the ‘Have a Heart Healthy Valentine’s Day’ event to encourage KCKCC employees to celebrate Valentine’s Day with heart healthy activities,” she said. “The event was a great success, and it evolved into what it is today with students, staff, faculty and the community participating in the ‘Have a Heart Healthy Valentine’s Day’ event.”

For more information or to register for the “Have a Heart Healthy Valentine’s Day,” call the Wellness & Fitness Center at 913- 288-7610.
