This year’s YIKAN event on Friday, April 9th is likely to not only motivate attendees to take on a healthy lifestyle, but to also take to the dance floor.

The creator of one of the most watched YouTube videos will be this year’s YIKAN kickoff guest speaker. To accommodate speaker Judson Laipply, this event will change from a breakfast to a lunch and will be held from noon until 1:30 p.m. at the Oswego YMCA Armory.

Laipply will encourage those at the lunch to take on a healthy lifestyle and will then perform what has become his signature show, ‘The Evolution of Dance.’ Laipply became well known on YouTube after he posted a video of himself dancing to a mix of 12 popular dance songs from the last 50 years. The Evolution of Dance is the second most watched video on YouTube. As of February 25, the site had more than 137 million viewers. To see the video, visit: http://www.evolutionofdance.com

The lunch will kick off a 20-week training program that leads to the Novelis 10Kan events to be held Saturday, September 18 at Breitbeck Park in Oswego.
