Thousands of Northeast Ohio residents will get the opportunity to get free health screenings and learn important information about living a healthier lifestyle from over 120 exhibitors at the 40,000 square foot exhibit.
Visitors will enjoy presentations on three stages that will include health and wellness information, the latest trends in healthy cooking and exercise, tips for keeping your family safe and ways to help keep your family, your finances and your body all in working order.
WKYC personalities, including Russ Mitchell, Kris Pickel, Betsy Kling and many others will be on hand to greet Expo guests who will also be given the chance to try their hand at being a weather anchor or a sportscaster. This was a highlight at last year’s Expo as folks uploaded their “TV debut” to the WKYC Facebook page for all to see
A number of area non-profit organizations will also be in attendance including the Red Cross, United Way, The Gathering Place, Legal Aid, March of Dimes, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland and College Now.
Family fun is at a premium this year with plenty for the younger set including a rock wall, soccer field and golf area. Attendees also got a few lessons from our area safety forces. The Cleveland Police and Fire Department, the Westlake Police Department, the Mentor Fire Department, and the FBI provided hands on exhibits on everything from fire and water safety to crime prevention tools.
WKYC President and General Manager Brooke Spectorsky said, “We know you care about your family – and so do we. We created the Health and Wellness to provide an opportunity for our viewers and our community to learn more about ways to live a healthy lifestyle and to get acquainted with a host of professionals who will be there to help them accomplish that goal. We’ve worked to make the Expo informative, interactive, family friendly and free.”
