Healthy living highlighted at second annual Carnes Crossroads Wellness Fair

Carnes Crossroads Wellness Fair

The vast array of health and wellness services, products and resources available in the Summerville and Goose Creek area will be on display at the Green Barn at Carnes Crossroads for the second annual Carnes Crossroads Wellness Fair on October 19. Admission and parking is free.

More than 30 exhibitors in the categories of fitness, traditional medicine, holistic medicine and nutrition will be showcasing and demonstrating their expertise from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. while they talk with attendees about healthy lifestyles and wellness. Other highlights for this year’s event include fitness classes, an obstacle course for kids, puppy yoga and pet adoptions from the Berkeley Animal Center. The Blood Connection will also be onsite with its mobile blood collection unit to collect blood donations.

Organized by the Carnes Crossroads Town Association, the event is made possible by the support of some of the businesses who call the Carnes Crossroads community home, including Roper St. Francis, Solomon Dentistry, Pulte Homes, Charleston ENT, Charleston GI and Precision Chiropractic.

With the new Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital opening in October — and dozens of healthcare and medical professionals already seeing patients at offices located along North Main Street — the master planned community of Carnes Crossroads is becoming an active medical hub that is serving residents living in the growing neighborhoods at Carnes Crossroads and in the surrounding communities.

“We’re pleased to be building upon a tradition started by residents and business professionals at Carnes Crossroads last year,” said Jane Baker, Vice President of Community Services for the Carnes Crossroads Property Association. “We are fortunate to be home to an exceptional array of healthcare providers who are eager to share resources and information with residents and visitors who want to learn about the many ways they can engage in healthy lifestyles.”

The Green Barn is located at 207 1st Avenue within the Carnes Crossroads community. For directions and further information, visit the event listing on www.carnescrossroadsevents.com.
