LOMBARD – The Healthy Lombard Foundation is accepting nominations for its annual Health Heroes recognition, which honors individuals and, for the first time this year, families who have made a noticeable effort to improve their health and wellness during the past year.
People chosen for Health Heroes recognition will receive their awards during the foundation’s Healthy Lombard Fitness February Fair on Feb. 27 at Yorktown Center in Lombard.
To make a Health Heroes nomination, write one paragraph explaining what an individual or a family has done to get healthy and email it to Jay Wojcik, Healthy Lombard’s founder, at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail the information to her at 128 S. Third Ave., Lombard, IL 60148 by Feb. 5.
All members of the Lombard area are invited to attend the Fitness February Fair from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. It will feature health-related displays, free health screenings and the opportunity to participate in interactive presentations. The event is made possible through the sponsorship of Partners of Healthy Lombard, a nonprofit foundation established in 2010, to address childhood obesity and promote healthy living for everyone.
