Location: McKinley Park Fieldhouse 2210 W. Pershing Rd Chicago IL 60609

This is not just another health fair. It?s the chance to celebrate family and good health, while also bringing your organization quality face-time with the community. This event draws over 2,000 individuals each year.

Chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma, HIV/AIDS, and childhood and adult obesity are affecting many in our community. íVive tu Vida! Get up! Get moving! provides the perfect opportunity to showcase products and services that address these health issues, preventive care, and positive lifestyle choices.

íVive tu Vida! is designed to promote individual and family physical activity for better health. The event will include organized physical activities for adults and children (including soccer and tennis tournaments), screenings, and take-home information. íVive tu vida! Get up! Get moving! has something for everyone.

Partner with hosts The Chicago Hispanic Health Coalition and the National Alliance for Hispanic Health to bring valuable resources and information to families in Chicagoland. Learn how you can become a sponsor and Get up! Get moving!
