The competitors in the fun run take off from the starting line.

It was “One Healthy Way” to spend the day when South Nassau Communities Hospital held its 22nd Annual “Communities for a Cure” Cancer Awareness 5K Run/Walk & Multi-Cultural Health Fair on Sunday, Sept. 29 from 8:30 a.m. – 12 noon.

This year’s event was highlighted by a first ever US Coast Guard display and demonstration on boating safety as well as the return of live entertainment featuring a steel-drum band.

The Multi-cultural Health Fair featured more than 80 tables with displays from departments of the hospital and community agencies. Free health screenings for cardiac risk factors including cholesterol, Body Mass Index (BMI), and blood pressure will be offered, as well as screening for prostate cancer (PSA). There will also be an inter-active demonstration of the da Vinci® (robotic) Surgical System. Complimentary refreshments will be provided and tickets will be sold for a drawing for raffle prizes.
