Energizing Euclid Kick-off to Health

Euclid Mayor Bill Cervenik has partnered with the Cleveland Clinic to designate the City of Euclid as part of the Clinic’s Healthy Communities Initiative (HCI) for 2015. The HCI is designed to positively impact our community through education and awareness, using community resources to promote optimal health and wellness. This year-long initiative will include monthly health programming such as quarterly health talks, a health and wellness fair, a signature walk/run, a wellness challenge, a community walking program, healthy cooking demonstrations, and other outreach activities. In addition, Northeast Shores Development Corporation has partnered with the Cleveland Clinic on their Healthy Collinwood 2015 initiative.  Since both programs look at keeping our residents in both communities healthy, the kickoff is a way to incorporate both programs into one.  Local businesses, with an interest in health and wellness are also partners and will be showcases their programs or services at the kickoff.

Join us Sunday, May 17th from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Euclid Family YMCA, 631 Babbitt Rd, Euclid, 44123 for activities and information on health and wellness.  Screenings will be provided (blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, body mass index and eye). The best news is that the event is FREE and you can begin your journey toward good health by joining the ENERGIZING EUCLID community health initiative.  To see the flier, click on  https://www.facebook.com/EnergizeEuclid
