New Life Church-Health Ministries of Huntsville, Alabama sponsored its first community health fair “For the Health of It” on Sunday, September 10, 2017. Medical professionals and other vendors offered biometric screenings, medical consultations, healthy nutrition options, mental and physical wellness testing/consultation for adults and children, free food/clothing and more. The fair was for everyone, but the emphasis was on getting kids active. So in the spirit of child obesity month, 41 bicycles were given to children from the community and the Alabama Mentor Foster Care system.
“Health is Wealth; you can have all the money in the world, but if you don’t have good health then you can’t enjoy it.”
The donations of bicycles came from New Life Church members and friends. In addition, funds were donated to secure safety helmets. Finally, twelve additional bicycles will be given to children in the community during the Christmas holiday season.
