LOMBARD – Healthy Lombard is now accepting nominations for its annual Health Heroes recognition, which honors people and companies for making healthy choices.
The awards honor individuals who have made a noticeable effort to improve their personal health and wellness during the past year and work sites that have made positive, healthy changes in their work environments, according to a Healthy Lombard news release.
Those who are chosen for the Health Heroes recognition will receive their awards at the 2015 Healthy Lombard Fitness February Fair at 1:30 p.m. Feb. 28 at Yorktown Shopping Center.
The fair will be from 10 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., and anyone is welcome to attend. It will feature health-related displays, free health screenings and the opportunity to participate in interactive presentations.
This health and fitness event is made possible through the sponsorship of Partners of Healthy Lombard, a nonprofit established in 2009 to address childhood obesity and promote healthy living for everyone, the release stated.
