The Temple City Unified School District will host a free Community Health Fair and 5K Run/Walk on May 9, 2009.
There is no cost to participate in the Run/Walk. All runners and walkers will receive a T-shirt and medals will be awarded in several categories.
Registration form must be turned in to Jeanne St. Pierre; the deadline for registration is April 15. Registration forms for the 5K Run/Walk are available at the TCUSD District Office, all school sites, and at the City Hall in Temple City. Late registration on the day of the event will be taken, but T-shirts are limited to those who register in advance.
Check-in for the Run/Walk will begin at 7:00 a.m. at Temple City Park, located at 9701 Las Tunas Drive in Temple City.
The free Community Health Fair will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., also at Temple City Park. A dentist will provide student dental screenings, which are mandated by the State. The Fair will also include diabetes, grip strength, body fat, and blood pressure screenings. Vendors will provide information about acupuncture, mental health services, smoking cessation, and more!
Fun activities are planned-face painting, an inflatable bouncer for kids, and a raffle for adults! Come visit with Huntington Memorial Hospital’s pet therapy dogs. Hoopadelic will provide a hula hoop demonstration and contest. Temple City High School’s Jazz Band and Longden Elementary School’s Drill Team will perform in the Performing Arts Pavilion.
The 5K Run/Walk and Health Fair are sponsored by the Temple City Unified School District Local Education Agency, a health community outreach organization. For more information, call Jeanne St. Pierre at 626-548-5000, Extension 1904.
