Meridian Health To Host Fit and Fabulous Event With 94.3 The Point On November 11, 2008

Event to provide educational information and healthy fun for the whole family

Encouraging one's family to live healthier lives can be challenging, but with the right assistance it doesn't have to be. Join the hospitals of Meridian Health and 94.3 The Point at Branches Catering on Monmouth Road in West Long Branch from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for "Fit and Fabulous," a fun-filled evening which will include free screenings, speakers, shopping, games, prizes and more!

A complimentary healthy buffet will be offered by Branches Catering during the program, as well as free chair massages, face painting and crafts, lifestyle information, demos and a Nintendo Wii Tournament. Music, contests and prizes will be provided including a chance to win a six month membership to LA Boxing for two!

The event will also include a very special visit from mascot and newest team member at K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital, Dr. Bernard. An expert at teaching children how to stay healthy so they don't end up in the hospital, Dr. Bernard and his "Pawsitive Action" will be offering free temporary colorful casts and tattoos for the kids.
