The Pass It On - Good Health Celebration at Woodstock City Park this past Saturday, September 29 was a huge success as families were reminded of how much fun it is to play together while getting physically fit!
Dozens of families came to enjoy fun games, entertaining exercises, dancing, Zumba®, walking, jump roping, healthy snacks, nutritious recipe demonstrations, and health screenings such as blood pressure and body mass index (BMI) measurements and hearing, dental and vision screenings for kids!
Plus, a clothing and food drive took place simultaneously at nearby Allen Temple AME Church as well as the ribbon-cutting to the church's brand new Lactation Room, where mothers may privately breastfeed their babies while attending worship services.
The Pass It On - Good Health Celebration was a *Georgia SHAPE event and was sponsored by the Allen Temple AME Church of Woodstock. Participating partners included LA Fitness, Kroger, Cherokee County Health Department, North Georgia WIC, and the North Georgia Health District, part of the Georgia Department of Public Health.
