“A Crucial Catch Day” at Samuel U. Rodgers
On October 25, 2014 Juntos held “A Crucial Catch Day” at Samuel U. Rodgers. The health fair was organized by Mariana Ramirez and her team of Promotoras. “A Crucial Catch Day” was planned to be a day for women to pamper themselves and learn about different services.
Services that were offered include BMI, glucose, and blood pressure tests, flu vaccines, nail art, chair massages, Zumba, nutrition education, and one-on-one education in breast cancer. 21 mammograms were performed that day for woman that had low-income or had trouble getting an appointment.
Chiefs cheerleaders & KC Wolf came in support of the event and signed posters for kids. “A Crucial Catch Day” was very successful and we were able to see families enjoy all the services the health fair had to offer. We would like to thank all of our volunteers and the organizations that came to support us, this event would not have been the success that it was without their participation. More photos of our participants can be seen on our facebook page .
