Health and Fitness Expo
The Health and Fitness Expo is an annual health fair coordinated by the Student Health and Wellness Center that highlights the on-campus departments and off-campus vendors that provide assistance with all aspects of student health and wellbeing. The event is held every September and includes food, giveaways, and prizes for students who attend. This event is open to all 37,000 students at UNT and is a collaboration with the Rec Sports department.
This year's event will be held on September 26, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Onstead Promenade outside of the Library Mall entrance to the University Union.
Sponsoring the Health and Fitness Expo
We want students to connect with the on-campus resources that can keep them healthy, but we recognize that their are a lot of off-campus businesses who can provide additional resources and services to our students. We want to work with your businesses in a partnership to ensure are students are healthy mentally and physically.
Eligibility to participate in the Health and Fitness Expo
Since many health and wellness services are provided to UNT students as part of their semesterly tuition, we limit the types of establishments that can participate in the Health and Fitness Expo so students do not get the mistaken impression that they have to pay additional money for services they already have on campus. Therefore, businesses are not allowed to advertise the following categories of services as vendors at the Health and Fitness Expo. Vendors found to be advertising restricted services will be asked to leave the event and risk forfeiture of their sponsorship fee.
- Dental offices
- Dietitian or nutritionist services
- Gyms, fitness centers or yoga studios (including group exercise classes or personal training)
- Gynecologists offices
- Massage therapy offices
- Optical clinics
- Primary care clinics
- Smoothie vendors
- Supplement companies
If you are unsure whether your business would be eligible to participate, or have other questions about partnering with us on the Health and Fitness Expo, please contact Kerry Stanhope by email or by calling 940-565-2787.
Benefits of sponsoring the Health and Fitness Expo
Sponsors who submit payment by September 11, 2017 will have their business name or logo listed on the event website (this page) and will have a table location during the health fair. Businesses can provide their own table and chairs or we can provide a table and two chairs, if we are notified by September 11, 2017 of this need. Vendors will also be listed on Bingo cards that students will be required to complete for an event T-shirt. Vendors can also bring their own popup tents or canopies to provide shade for their table. We are unable to provide electricity for vendors at this time.
