West Broad Street YMCA hosts first "Healthy Body, Healthy Mind" event


Families were invited to a health fair at the the West Broad Street YMCA Saturday for the first annual "Healthy Body, Healthy Mind" event for the children of the community along with their parents.

Their mission is to help educate children and their families on the importance of creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They also collected food for the "Blessings in a Book Bag" program which provides non perishable and easy to prepare foods for fifty children at Bartow Elementary to make sure they have plenty to eat throughout the weekends.

"The turnout has been wonderful, we have kids coming from the neighborhood and the parents are actually getting involved, they're out here, they want to know more about how they can prepare nutritional meals for the family and how they can do things to incorporate that physical fitness component within the family, so we are super excited," said Mohagany Bowers.
