There will also be presentations from organizations like 500 Sails/ Dolphin Swim Club and a Zumba class by Uncle Ben’s Dance Studio.

Health fair activities will run from 8am until 12pm and will also feature a 5K Walk starting at 6am. The first 10 participants who finish the 5K Walk will also receive T-shirt prizes and a raffle ticket to a chance to win great prizes. Entrance to the health fair and the 5K Walk is free.

Those who attend the health fair can also take advantage of free health services including free flu immunizations, screenings for blood pressure and blood glucose levels, as well as free HIV and STD testing and counseling.

Participants will also have a chance to win raffle prizes from The Shack, Coca-Cola, Subway and other prizes from other companies in the community. Funds raised will be donated to the NMC’s Nursing Club to purchase lancets and other supplies used for community service projects.
