[February 20, 2014]  Logan County businesses and organizations are invited to bring their health-related offerings to the Community Health Fair, scheduled for March 29 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lincoln Park District, 1400 Primm Road. The health fair is sponsored by the Lincoln Park District and the Logan County Department of Public Health.

This year's theme, "5 2 1 0  Be a Healthy Hero," is highlighting an easy-to-remember program to keep healthy: five fruits and vegetables each day; no more than two hours of recreational screen time each day; at least one hour of activity daily; and no sugar-sweetened beverages.

"We already have several exhibitors lined up for the event, but we want to open the opportunity up to the public," said Marcia Greenslate, administrator at the Lincoln Park District. "A booth at the health fair is a great opportunity to make your services known and help our local effort to encourage healthy choices. We especially encourage exhibits that can promote one of the '5 2 1 0' messages."

This year, the event will also feature a 65-foot inflatable obstacle course, sponsored by Healthy Communities Partnership, and other family-friendly activities.
