The Asheville Health Adventure Partners with Park Ridge Health

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

ASHEVILLE, NC – The Asheville Health Adventure we all know and love, and long time resident of Pack Place, is moving into Asheville’s Biltmore Square Mall on Brevard Road after a partnership with Park Ridge Health.  The Health Adventure was founded in 1968, as the first in this genre of non-profits featuring health education for schools, families, students, and more.

Guests of The Health Adventure with annual memberships will continue at The Health Adventure of Biltmore Square Mall once the new site is open.  The mall relocation and partnership with Park Ridge Health will allow the Health Adventure to grow and be accessible to even more of the community than in its previous location, bringing to the forefront new programs, including senior outreach classes, and even more exciting community programs!  Programs for children in schools on field trips continue also, with a new exciting display of the science behind sports.
