Healthy Lifestyles Start with Physical Activities
Friday, June 12, 2015
McKinley Park was the playing field for over 950 individuals who came to participate in soccer and tennis tournaments and benefitted from healthy lifestyle resources, last Saturday. The Chicago Hispanic Health Coalition annually invites the community to take part in physical activities, screenings and take home information for families interested in good health. This event addresses health issues that affect Latinos and encourages preventative and active lifestyle choices. The sports, fun, physical activities and health education were the heart of event.
