The Concilio Presents Seventh Annual ¡Vive Tu Vida! Get Up! Get Moving!® Event
Date:10/2/2013

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 02, 2013

On Saturday, October 5, 2013, The Concilio will present its seventh annual family health and fitness fair ¡Vive tu vida! Get Up! Get Moving!®. This event promotes Hispanic family physical activity and good nutrition for better health and wellness for people of all ages and all sizes. The event, which is FREE and open to the public, will be held at Kiest Park Recreation Center, 3080 S. Hampton Road, in Dallas, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

“We partner with the National Alliance for Hispanic Health and host this event annually because it is critical that families in our community take action to improve their health,” said Florencia Velasco Fortner, President and CEO of The Concilio. “One out of every four Texans does not have health insurance, and our event has allowed families to return year after year to screen themselves for common but serious health conditions.”

¡Vive tu vida! Get Up! Get Moving!® demonstrates the power of culture, family, and community to promote better health for all. The Dallas event will feature FREE health information and screenings, including dental, kidney, prostate, glucose, cholesterol, syphilis, and HIV. There will also be activities for the whole family including sports clinics, healthy cooking demonstrations, a KidZone with inflatables and rock climbing wall, and the opportunity to help create the largest Zumbathon in Dallas! Participants will also have the chance to win raffles and giveaways, enjoy healthy snacks, listen to fun music, and much more!

“The support we receive from Newman’s Own Foundation and the Healthy Americas Foundation allows us to serve 20,000 people at community family health events this year, like the one this weekend in Dallas,” said Dr. Jane L. Delgado, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, the nation’s leading Hispanic health advocacy group, and author of The Latina Guide to Health and the Buena Salud® Guide book series.

“We are proud to support the National Alliance for Hispanic Health in providing community-based health and nutrition outreach,” said Robert Forrester, president of Newman’s Own Foundation. “One of the Foundation’s priorities is the support of nonprofits whose focus is on nutrition, and ¡Vive tu vida! Get Up! Get Moving!® works to address a broad range of needs on the local level.”

All participants of ¡Vive tu vida! Get Up! Get Moving!® Dallas will be eligible to register for the National Alliance for Hispanic Health’s Buena Salud® Club. This free membership club is designed to promote healthy lifestyles by providing year-round reliable and confidential health information and provider referrals.
