Celebration of Wellness

Celebration of Wellness is a daylong adventure in interactive learning & fun designed to assist Central neighborhood families in gaining necessary tools for healthy living. The health fair activities focus primarily on cancer detection and prevention. Events include a one-mile walk run, outdoor family games, and healthy snacks. Volunteers come from the surrounding neighborhood, St. Vincent Charity Hospital, and The Sisters of Charity Health System.

The event is sponsored by Arbor Park Village, City of Cleveland Division of Water, Cleveland State University College of Urban Affairs, Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland, St. Vincent Charity Hospital, Sisters of Charity Health System, and Tri C Metro Campus.
