Welcome to the Men's Health Event
On Saturday, October 3, 2015, MIU Men’s Health Foundation will be hosting the fifth 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 thousands of attendees and over 3,000 screenings performed last year, we hope to screen as many men as possibly at this year’s event!
During the event, there will also be raffle prizes, an “Ask the Doctor” area, health and sport displays, fitness activities, free haircuts, guest speakers and more! Attendees will have the chance to participate in an on-field yoga class led by Detroit Community Yoga. 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. 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!
