Family Health Expo Returns to Village Sportsplex April 14
Posted on 04/03/2018

The community is invited to the Village of Orland Park Recreation Department's annual Family Health Expo on Saturday, April 14 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Sportsplex, 11351 W. 159th Street.

The free and fun-filled day will highlight the fitness needs of those both young and old.

The expo offers information on various health and nutrition issues, a chance to sample aerobic classes, and provide free blood pressure screenings, flexibility testing, and injury screenings.

"An important part of staying healthy is to be screened for potentially dangerous conditions," said Deborah Geghen, Fitness Manager for the Village of Orland Park. "This expo is a great time to have fun and also focus on your health."

New in 2018, guests are encouraged to dress comfortably and join in on exhilarating group exercise classes. This year's expo will also feature new vendors, along with skin cancer screenings done by Skin MD.

The children are also in for some fun, as the expo features face painting, a Dino Jump inflatable, and an obstacle course. If children have bicycles, they are encouraged to bring them to have a safety check done by Performance Bicycle.

"This is a great opportunity to show children the benefits of staying healthy," Geghen said. "A lot of health expos tend to be geared toward adults, but ours is for everyone. We believe if the family can support and help each other to stay healthy, it makes for an easier and more fulfilling life."
