Health Fair





After you get your fitness on walking or running the 5k course, join us for a health fair to receive free health and wellness screenings, get tips from healthy food demonstrations, learn do’s and don’ts from exercise gurus and tour interactive exhibits on everything prevention! We will even have health partners providing services to our furry friends. And of course, we can’t forget the kids activities, ranging from arts and crafts, contests, face painting, games and much more to keep your little ones entertained.
