The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership announced a new Health & Wellness Fair, a weekly market that brings local providers of lifestyle goods and services together in the heart of Downtown Pittsburgh. Inspired by the Monday Campaigns, a global movement backed by leading public health schools that dedicates the first day of every week to good health, the Health & Wellness Fair occurs 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. every Monday in Market Square from June 3 to August 26.

“Whether it’s urban hiking, riverfront trails, fitness facilities, bike share, or healthy dining options, Downtown offers
multiple ways for people to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. The Yoga in the Square series has been one of our most popular
programs, and our new Health & Wellness Fair makes it even easier to connect with resources from all around the
region, all while on your lunch break,“ said Jeremy Waldrup, President & CEO of the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership.

Kicking off the first Health & Wellness Fair on June 3 will be group CPR demonstrations by Start the Heart LLC, an
American Heart Association-certified organization that will also share information on how to prevent and react to
cardiac arrest. According to the American Heart Association, nearly 45 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest victims
were revived when bystander CPR was administered.

More than two dozen rotating vendors will participate in the weekly the Health & Wellness Fair, offering goods and
services such as organic produce, fitness classes, health care and medicinal herbs. Subject to change, a partial sampling of
