Apple Festival Planned Sept. 23
The Department of Recreation Services within the Division of Student Affairs is hosting the annual Apple Festival, in partnership with SU Food Services, on Friday, Sept. 23, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on the Quad.
The festival provides the University community with an early fall opportunity to engage in a number of games; taste a variety of foods; shop at a local farmer’s market; run, walk or roll in a one-mile fun race; and connect with area vendors.
Information booths regarding programs and services provided by SU departments will also be on site. Departments can still register to table by contacting Joseph Lore at email@example.com. All students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend the festival.
“The Apple Festival offers the University community with nutritious foods and a variety of local vendors providing healthy products and services. It’s an excellent way to kick-off the fall season,” says Lore, director of Recreation Services.
The one-mile fun run/walk-n-roll will follow the Healthy Monday Mile Loop around campus. Participants will be able to get in their daily exercise while enjoying a tour of SU’s main campus.
Healthy Monday Syracuse, a major initiative of the Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion, is part of a national initiative to help end chronic preventable diseases by offering weekly prompts and programs to support people in sustaining healthy behaviors. By just walking 30 minutes a day, individuals can start to see numerous health benefits, according to the Healthy Monday website.
To register in advance for the fun run/walk, participants should fill out and fax back the online registration form available at recreationservices.syr.edu. Individuals may also register the day of the event.
