Berkshire Community College Wellness Day

The day will be filled with activities such as chair massages, sample exercise classes and food sampling, along with educational booths on how to care for yourself and loved ones.

The event is free to the public, with nominal fees for massages and exercise classes. All proceeds of the event go to EMPOWERSCI.org.
