The FREE event will take place at the Otto Armleder Park (5057 Wooster Pike, Cincinnati, OH 45227) from 11 am to 5 pm.

Earlier this year, LADD took a bold step toward advancing the independence and quality of life of adults with disabilities with a new Health and Wellness Program, and FitFest is our Program’s newest and largest initiative.

FitFest will include booths highlighting other Cincinnati area nonprofit organizations and businesses whose work involves enriching the lives of people with disabilities or is focused on health and wellness; health screenings; and a wide range of exercise demonstrations and classes.

“At LADD, we believe health and wellness is a key ingredient to assisting people with leading a fulfilling and independent life, and we believe in making that fun,” said Kristin Harmeyer, LADD’s Health and Wellness coordinator. “FitFest is for the whole community, to come out, be together, learn, and have fun living well.”
