Once again, it’s that time of year where we invite all of our residents throughout the 19th Legislative District to come and celebrate our health and wellness at my annual Health and Wellness Weekend event on Saturday, Aug. 21.
This year carries an entirely new meaning for us. While we are still trying to navigate our way through this global pandemic, it’s appropriate for us to use the theme “It’s Different Now” for our annual celebration. It’s true: We are different. We should be different. We need to start acting differently to ensure we aren’t caught unprepared as we were before.
This begins with us. How will we start to build ourselves, our families, our communities back stronger and different than before? I’m excited to let you know that you don’t have to do that alone. The Health and Wellness Weekend event will feature many vendors, agencies, organizations, and people ready and prepared to assist you and your family with whatever you need to bring your health and wellness back stronger than before.
When we talk about health and wellness, it’s in a comprehensive sense: your physical, mental, spiritual, environmental, and financial health. If one of these aren’t healthy, then we aren’t truly at our best.
Please mark your calendars, join the movement, and come be a part of this all-inclusive, free and open event for all our residents. We’ll offer health screenings, COVID-19 vaccinations, free food, great entertainment, wonderful prizes and giveaways, and of course, our annual Historic Hill 5K walk, run, or bike event. You can register or find more information regarding the event at www.HWW19th.com, or call The People’s Office at 412-471-7760.
Northside residents, come out and be counted! Prior to the start of our Health and Wellness event on Aug. 21, come support the Northside bookbag drive for our students, who we need to celebrate and support as they prepare for the new school year. Remember, It’s Different Now: Without each other, who do we have?
