June 26, 2012 (CARSON, California) — Polynesian dance and island reggae performances interspersed with adult workouts and kids’ fitness activities are sure to get the feet moving and blood pumping at the 2nd Annual Ohana Wellness Center Community Health Fair & Concert on July 21. The free, energy-packed event will take place from 11am-4pm at the Carson Civic Center, 801 E. Carson St., Carson.
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, some 90 percent of adults have difficulty using the everyday health information available at hospitals, pharmacies, retail stores and even community centers. On top of youth and adult fitness activities, the health fair aims to help fill this communication gap through more than 30 informational and free health-screening booths by trusted community organizations and healthcare providers, such as the Samoan National Nurses Association, Tongan Community Service Center and South Bay Family Health Care.
“The live musical performances and cultural entertainment will definitely get people up and moving on the day of the event,” said Myron Mailo, Ohana Wellness Center president.
“But the free mammograms, blood-pressure tests, youth dental screenings, and so forth, as well as the one-on-one time with healthcare professionals and educators, will benefit families well after the health fair is over. The lasting impact on the wellness of our community is what this event is all about.”
The fitness-focused weekend will also include two evening events:
• Unity Through Health & Wellness Benefit Show, featuring the
internationally celebrated Laughing Samoans comedy duo and the Zapp Band.
Saturday, July 21, at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center, 1935
Manhattan Beach Blvd., Redondo Beach.
• Unity Through Health & Wellness Pre-Launch Party, featuring the Common
Kings and special musical guests. Friday, July 20, at Alpine Village, 833
Torrance Blvd., Torrance.
A portion of the proceeds from each show will go to local wellness organizations and initiatives.
