Health and Fitness Advocates

Mission Statement

We are a student led organization that serves to promote, preserve and protect the health and fitness of SUNY Potsdam students and the Potsdam community. Membership is open to any student of any major and background.

Organizational Goals

In the future we would like to host guest speakers, hold panel discussions, go to conferences and start a campaign with PACES to promote healthy eating on campus. This club is largely made up of Community Health majors and minors but we want to include the entire campus in order to spread wellness and provide an environment where like-minded people can share and develop ideas related to health and fitness. We always work as a team so it's a great way to meet new people and make friends.

Recent Activities:

We maintain the campus Food Pantry in 100D Dunn that is open to any student or faculty member. Our main events and priority campaigns are Relay for Life, Condom Grams, "Out of Bounds" Kickball Tournament to raise awareness for sexual assault, tabling with activities at the Potsdam Farmer's Market Fall Festival, and giving out healthy finals baggies to relieve stress.
