NEW ORLEANS – Son of a Saint, the 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of fatherless boys in Greater New Orleans is hosting another edition of its Wellness Weekend series. Mentees and mentors in the program will take part in a series of health, wellness and physical exercise activities, with members of the Son of a Saint team and its community partners. The Son of a Saint program series will continue on an ongoing basis, during the third Saturday and Sunday of every month.
The weekend will kick off with a 5K Run led by members of the local chapter of Black Men Run NOLA, a dedicated Son of a Saint partner. Immediately following, Wellness Weekend participants will take part in a yoga session, guided by the team leader from New Orleans-based practice Yeah! Yoga. From there, the Son of a Saint squad will head to CrossFit NOLA 504 to push themselves and learn more about exercise techniques, methods and challenges.
The weekend will conclude on Sunday with a DIY Wellness plan and schedule, offering mentees a do-it-yourself approach to self-care practices and routines. The DIY Wellness Sunday will feature at-home activities including motivational reading, journaling, spending dedicated quality time with family and friends, along with goal setting and intentions for the future.
