Community Comes Together to Fall into Health at Annual Health Fair and 5k
The Wright Center for Primary Care hosted its Annual Fall into Health Fair and 5K Walk/Run on Sunday, October 1, 2017. The event included a morning full of activities and helpful health-related information, including blood pressure screenings, BMI screenings, nutrition information, massage therapy, a children’s obstacle course, pumpkin decorating and face painting, along with the annual 5K race. The first place male finisher was Christopher Hughes and the first place female finisher was Stacy Lyons. Click here to access the full race results.
In total, $1,141 was raised through a basket raffle, and all proceeds will be donated to the Community Health Hub Driving Better Health Initiative, which helps patients access affordable transportation to and from their medical care.
Therapy dogs from Pleasure of Your Company Therapy Dogs were on site to meet health fair attendees and Athletes Caring Together (ACT), a local non-profit, hosted an obstacle course for kids.
The event was made possible through the generosity of local sponsors UPMC Health Plan, Community Care Behavioral Health, Health Network Laboratories, AmeriHealth Caritas, Universal Printing, Dr. John Kuna, Psy. D. and Associates and Accentuate Caterers.
