HealthQuest expo at Copper seeks sponsors

COPPER MOUNTAIN – Women of the Summit is looking for health professionals and health-related businesses interested in booth space or in sponsoring HealthQuest expo at Copper Mountain, set for Sept. 7.

HealthQuest is an annual event that focuses on health, safety and fitness in a high alpine, high-energy environment. Last year, the event drew more than 300 people from Summit, Lake and Eagle counties. The event consists of a silent auction dinner, children’s walk-a-thon, a 5-

kilometer race, a women’s health symposium and a health expo. All race registration fees and dinner proceeds go to the Women of the Summit’s cancer prevention efforts and to Advocates for Victims of Assault.

Booth space at the health expo is free for health professionals and health-related businesses willing to offer a free service to the public that day. Space is limited to 20 booths, and reservations are filling up quickly, so call now. To reserve your space, contact Jackie Picard at (970) 453-7907.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available to businesses and individuals looking to support healthy lifestyles in our mountain community. Sponsors will receive advertising and publicity for their involvement. Various levels of sponsorship, from cash donations to donation of goods and services, are available.
