The railroad muse- urn/park provided a comfortable setting for the second annual health and fitness fair sponsored by Shetek Medical Services. Runners/walkers stepped off the day with a 5K race. In addition to run- ners from the local area, runners entered from Alaska, Idaho, and Colorado, and Arizona. The oldest par- ticipant was 83 years young, and the youngest was 6 years old. (Listing of times and runners will be printed in next week's Sentinel.) Over forty booths offered free information and testing on numerous health concerns. Attendees could get allergy/asthma screenings, blood pres- sure readings, hearing tests, body mass index numbers, and peripheral arterial disease screening. Pre-registration was required for some tests, and a few had a nominal cost. No records have been kept to report specific personal results of the first fair last summer at the same loca- tion, but one volunteer learned of two positive results. One individual men- tioned that he has been on blood pres- sure medication after last year's testing at the health fair indicated that he had high blood pressure. 2nd annual Continued on page 12 INFORMATION * CLASSIFIEDS ADVERTISING CIRCULATION 507-274-6136 OR 800-410-1859 Please read and recycle Printed with Soybased Ink Copyright 2004 Sentinel Tribune
