St Mary's Hospital partnered with the Forrest Burdette Memorial United Methodist church to host Healthy Hurricane Day.
All of Saturday's fun kicked off with a 5K Fun Run and Walk. People also received free health screenings and information on how to live a longer and healthier life.
“Not only is it free, but you can talk with our staff one-on-one, so it's a really good way to interact with people in the medical center,” Jamilyn Hamlin, St. Mary's Medical Center Wellness Coordinator, said. “A lot of times people are able to detect health risks that they may have not even known were evident. It's a really good way to get a good check-up on your health and make sure you're in good shape. We're always happy when we can interact with the community in that way.”
Participants also got free education on healthy foods and how to grow their own vegetables to create delicious, healthy recipes.
