This community health fair is recognized as a LIVE UNITED Day project and is sponsored by United Way of Cass County, Better Health of Cass County, and Logansport Savings Bank.

Throughout the day, there will be several interactive demonstrations held on the new community stage from the Cass County Community Foundation. These include yoga, Zumba, cooking, and more! Other event highlights to be noted are the free health screens, free hearing screenings, and free vision screens that will be available for all who attend.

“LIVE UNITED Day is all about working together to serve our community, by bringing together numerous volunteers and projects that will leave a lasting impact on those involved,” comments Scott Kraud, Chairman of Better Health of Cass County. “This health fair will bring together several of our resources in Cass County who make it their mission to serve our community and meet its changing needs.”

“Additionally, we hope this event will two do things – increase awareness of local, state, and national health services available to our community, and motivate participants to make positive health behavior changes in their own lives. If either of these are accomplished, we will consider this event a great success, and a true demonstration of what it means to LIVE UNITED,” he says.
