Members of the Contra Costa Alumnae chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. are working hard to spread the word about a free community health fair on March 9 that will offer family fun, healthy living tips, and free health screenings at John F. Kennedy High School, 4300 Cutting Blvd., Richmond
The event, called "Keep it 100" (lingo for being honest and true to yourself), will have activities for all ages, nutritional snacks and healthy food from vendors, educational workshops and giveaways, all with a focus on curbing childhood and adult obesity in underserved communities.
The day is an outgrowth of the annual "impact day" held nationally and internationally by chapters of Delta Sigma Theta, a sorority of black, college-educated women.
The Contra Costa Alumnae chapter has chosen to address obesity, particularly among inactive young people with an event that will have healthy living and active lifestyle demonstrations, food and nutrition clinics, games and exercise workshops, dance sessions and exercise and weight management clinics with local gym staff and personal trainers who are volunteering their services.
Advance registration can be done in advance online at http://ccackeepit100.eventbrite.com or on the day of the event starting at 9:30 a.m.
A family fun walk around the JFK campus to get participants warmed up will start at 10 a.m.
