YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles Partners with MundoFOX 22 for upcoming Feria de Salud Y Educación Community Event

We’re excited to announce our participation in the upcoming Feria De Salud y Educación free community health fair, taking place on Sunday, November 9, 2014 from 12pm – 6pm at Grand Park in Downtown Los Angeles.  Recognized as an official event sponsor, your YMCA LA has teamed up with MundoFOX 22 to provide important health information during this lively and entertaining event.

This is the health and education fair’s second year, and it will once again provide Angelenos with free health screenings, flu shots, group fitness classes, healthy food options, and general information on how to live a healthier life. Featuring live entertainment and interactive activities, the community health fair event is free and open to everyone - and this year, Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter and revered Mexican actress, Angélica María, will act as the Grand Marshal.

As a first-time Feria De Salud y Educación participant, we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to connect with our neighbors and help educate them about how to adapt and maintain a healthy lifestyle.  Our interactive on-site booth will deliver a fun and welcoming hands-on experience for the entire family, as our friendly staff will lead games and hand out prizes, fitness tips and pertinent health information to help empower everyone to lead a happy and healthy life.
