Woodstock (GA) - The Pass It On - Good Health Celebration will be in Woodstock City Park on Saturday, September 29, 2012 and will be open and FREE to the public from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M.
Packed with wholesome activities and nutritious treats, the Pass It On-Good Health Celebration is being coordinated by Allen Temple AME Church of Woodstock and will serve as a festive reminder to families of just how much fun it is to play together!
This event is part of Georgia SHAPE Month, when during September, Georgians from every corner of
the state are invited to participate in a vast array of health and fitness activities.
"Georgia SHAPE is about improving the health of our state's children," Gov. Nathan Deal said as he signed the official September proclamation. "And SHAPE Month is about letting every Georgia family know we support them and we want them to know fitness is fun."
Fitness and fun will certainly be the theme at the Pass It On - Good Health Celebration as LA Fitness gets folks moving and North Georgia Women, Infants and Children (WIC) provides free healthy cooking tips along with nutritious recipes that the whole family will enjoy. Plus, locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables will be available at affordable prices, and Kroger will supply healthy snacks.
Additionally, the Cherokee County Health Department will provide activities and screenings that focus on improving healthy behaviors.
Woodstock City Park is located at the corner of Main and West Mill Streets in Woodstock.
