Go dance event gets families moving

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU)- Hundreds of people put on their dancing shoes to get up and get active Sunday in Chippewa Falls.

Sacred Heart Hospital and St. Joseph's Hospital teamed up for their fourth Go Dance event held Sunday afternoon.

Participants had the opportunity to learn different types of dance like hip hop, tai chi and polka from local instructors as part of the event.

“We wanted to show a variety of movement at the event and show people it doesn't have to be a high intensity workout that just moving 15 minutes a day is beneficial,” St. Joseph’s Hospital Marketing Specialist Michele Paquette said.

Sacred Heart Hospital and St. Joseph's say the event was put on as part of their GO campaign which encourages everyone to get up and be active for at least 15 minutes a day.

As part of the campaign the hospitals have put out a free wellness and health tracker app. To find out more information on the app just follow the link on the right-hand side of this screen under Related Items.
