The Pass It On — Good Health Celebration is planned from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is being coordinated by Allen Temple AME Church of Woodstock.
The Cherokee County Health Department will provide activities and screenings that focus on improving healthy behaviors at the free event.
The event is part of Georgia SHAPE Month, when Georgians from every corner of the state are invited to participate in a vast array of health and fitness activities during September.
“Georgia SHAPE is about improving the health of our state’s children,” Gov. Nathan Deal said according to a release from the health department. “And SHAPE Month is about letting every Georgia family know we support them and we want them to know fitness is fun.”
The Woodstock event is expected to be packed with wholesome activities and nutritious treats and will serve as a reminder to families of just how much fun it is to play together.
North Georgia Women, Infants and Children (WIC) will provide free healthy cooking tips along with nutritious recipes that the whole family will enjoy.
Plus, locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables will be available at affordable prices, and Kroger will supply healthy snacks. Woodstock City Park is located at the corner of Main and West Mill Streets in Woodstock.
