ReGenesis Health Care announces that the Back to School Health Fair and Bash will be held on Saturday, July 23 at Barnet Park in Spartanburg.  Registration will take place at the First Baptist Church of Spartanburg Welcome Center the day of the event. The event begins at 10:00 a.m. and ends at 2:00 p.m. Pre-registration for the event is not necessary. Elementary and junior high aged children and their families are invited to this event (children need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian to sign the consent form and need to complete at least two health screenings in order to receive their backpacks and school supplies).

Over 40 community partners will gather and offer health screenings to all child attendees, provide educational information about community resources, and give children the supplies they need to go back to school. Health screenings that will be offered include: dental, vision, height, weight, BMI, blood pressure, glucose, asthma and scoliosis. Children must be present to receive a backpack.

Free entertainment and activities will include: great food, bouncy houses, haircuts, children’s clothing, and food boxes.

Volunteers are always needed and accepted. If interested in volunteering for the event, contact Kayla Hyder at (864) 582-2817 ext. 1318 or log onto our website at www.myrhc.org.

This event is sponsored in part by Absolute Total Care (www.absolutetotalcare.com), First Choice by Select Health (http://www.selecthealthofsc.com), and other community partners, including First Baptist Spartanburg, Church Builders and Bikers Against Hunger.
