From The Banner…

Saturday was a record day for the 12th annual Walk of Life Health Fair, sponsored by the 100 Black Men of Bradley County.

This year’s opportunity for health screenings and a pick-up of valuable information about community programs and events was attended heavily throughout the day at Bradley Square Mall.

According to the two 100 BMBC officials, this year had a record number of vendors who set up booths through the lobby and along the hallway of the mall. More than 40 vendors participated this year, along with a number of partnering civic organizations.

There were two mobile units in the parking lot providing free breast and lung screenings (from the Mary Ellen Locher Breast Center and CHI Memorial Mobile Lung Screening services).

With the success of this year’s Walk of Life Health Fair, officials of the 100 Black Men of Bradley County are looking for an even bigger, and better, 2019 fair.
