Safety and wellness fair takes over Long Lines Rec Center
About 850 people came out to the Long Lines Rec Center for a health and safety fair Saturday.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
The best way to learn something new is to start early. Siouxland families headed to the Long Lines Rec Center Saturday, for a safety fair.
Booths were set up with games and prizes, all designed to help kids learn healthier habits.
From healthy eating to good hygiene, and even the best after-school activities, there was a lot to learn. Organizers say it's important for families to be healthy at home, so they see the doctor less.
"The best health starts at home. So, we want a good, healthy, happy family that practices wellness, good eating habits, exercises together, does educational things, the whole package," said Mandie Norby, marketing coordinator for UnityPoint Health at St. Luke's Regional Health Center.
About 850 people made their way to Long Lines for the event.
