Join the Fun

The idea behind Lunch Beat is simple – ditch your desk for an hour-long party in the middle of the work day. If you dance, you get a free lunch.

Lunch Beat was first brought to Cincinnati by Starfire Council last Spring. These semi-impromptu pop-up lunch events are designed to bring people together, highlight the fun and creative energy in the city of Cincinnati and most of all - to get people of all kinds to DANCE!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend 20 minutes of vigorous activity three times per week. But a community health study finds Cincinnatians don't get nearly enough. Interact for Health and ArtsWave are partnering to try to fix that.

They're awarding $300,000 in grants to 21 agencies to provide active living programs. Interact for Health's Jaime Love says "Join the Fun" is all about getting people moving.
