Welcome to the Men's Health Event
On Saturday, November 15, 2014, MIU Men’s Health Foundation will be hosting the fourth annual Men’s Health Event at Ford Field in Detroit from 9AM – 3PM. This free event will provide men a better understanding of how to stay healthy, free health screenings to assess their current health, and information about advances in healthcare. With over 5,600 attendees and over 1,000 completed screenings last year, we hope to screen approximately 2,000 men at this year’s event!
During the event, there will also be raffle prizes, an “Ask the Doctor” area, health and sport displays, guest speakers and more! Attendees will have the chance to participate in an on-field yoga class led by Detroit Community Yoga from 10AM-10:30AM, and 2PM-2:30PM. Please bring a yoga mat if you own one! There will also be a full body workout class led by Detroit Tough on the field from11AM-11:30AM and 1PM-1:30PM. Please wear comfortable workout clothing and gym shoes for both activities!
There will be additional activities from 10AM to 3PM including Quarterback Challenge, Pass & Kick and The Drive. Plus, attendees will have the opportunity to kick a field goal on Ford Field and receive a certificate signed by Former Detroit Lion Eddie Murray!
