Attendees can also have their Body Mass Index measured to determine steps toward becoming healthier and more physically fit.   Additionally expo goers can take advantage of a variety of health screenings offered by the Fulton County Health Department.  

Insurance agencies, personal trainers, gyms, medical firms, athletic apparel merchandise, healthy food and beverage businesses will be on hand to help guests learn more about steps they can take to live healthy day to day.

Saturday begins with families, sponsors and area businesses taking to the streets to kick off the 10K run/ 5K road race.   The race for many is the beginning of a journey to becoming physically fit. The race is also organized to benefit the fight to against diabetes and childhood obesity.   It also was organized to help youth gain scholarships that will assist them with their educational pursuits.

Commissioner Arrington believes events like the road race are necessary for the community, “My family and I have been supporters of this initiative since its inception.   I am honored to partner with the South Fulton Road Race because one of the tenets for Fulton County’s new strategic plan is “people are healthy.” I want to extend thanks to Your Health America and other partnering organizations for this initiative to help us become and maintain healthy lifestyles in District 5.”  Several sponsors help to make the South Fulton Road Race & Expo (SFRR) a success including: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., the South Fulton Business Coalition and the Atlanta MultiSports Magazine.
