Heart Healthy Ride-A-Thon

Alta Canyon invites the community to celebrate Valentine's Day a different way this year - by participating in our Heart Healthy Ride-A-Thon.  This free event will run from 8:00am to 8:00pm on February 14, 2017.  February is American Heart Month, a great month to encourage physical activity as a weapon against heart disease.  Those interested in participating can sign up at Alta Canyon for a time to ride a recumbent or stationary bike for 30 minutes.  The goal is to complete at least 15 hours of cardiovascular exercise during the event.  Membership is not required and there no fee to participate.  Participants who complete their 30 minutes time slot will be entered into a prize drawing.  For more information please call 801-568-4601.
