“The Middleburg Go Green Committee has made the decision to postpone the 2020 Middleburg Wellness Day due to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis.  The Committee felt it would be inappropriate to proceed with the event, particularly a wellness event where members of the public of all ages and health levels would be mingling in a relatively confined space.  We will work with all exhibitors and sponsors to identify a suitable date to reschedule, and will post a new date here.  We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you soon.”

Join Sanctuary practitioners at this event showcasing health and wellness.
There is a 5K run, followed by a fair with vendors and speakers
including several our practitioners!
This year’s theme is Brain Health.
We hope to see you there!
