Save the Date: Our Eighth Annual Walkathon/Health Fair is on Saturday September 21, 2013 at Pelham Bay Park from 8 AM until 2 PM.
HEALTH: The first part of the event is the walkathon, where grandparents and youngsters join in a walk. We hope you will enjoy this activity as you share it with a young person, and find a comfortable pace for both of you so you can enjoy being out together on a bright fall day in the park.
After the walk, we will all return to the central starting area where there will be many booths and tables supplying a wide variety of health and medical information. There will also be free medical screenings : you can be screened for diabetes, blood pressure, and asthma.
SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL: If you, or anyone you know needs Health Insurance, the good news is the next phase of The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) starts on October 1st. We will have people on hand to explain what this means, and how you can sign up for it.
ENTERTAINMENT: We will also be having some entertainment and some fun. Some of our favorite young artists will be performing for us and there will be a joint fashion show featuring both the seniors and the children. We have held this event many times in the past and it’s always been a real crowd pleaser. There will also be tables and chairs for the seniors to play games. There will be clowns, facepainting and arts and crafts for the kids.
It will be a great event and we can’t wait to see you on the 21st of September.
