Mayor Mike Purzycki and Parks and Recreation Director Kevin F. Kelley, Sr. today joined with the Wilmington Health Planning Council (WHPC) and Healthy Wilmington 2020 to invite citizens to the 17th annual Wilmington Wellness Day.

It will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019, from Noon to 3 p.m. at Brown-Burton-Winchester Park, at East 26th and North Pine Streets. The WHPC’s signature event, formerly held in Rodney Square, is moving to Northeast Wilmington this year after being staged at Herman Holloway, Sr. Park on the City’s East Side last year and at the William “Hicks” Anderson Community Center in 2017. This year’s event will take place rain or shine.

Wilmington Wellness Day is a fun, family-oriented event during which healthcare groups, safety-related organizations and businesses join with members of the community to promote safe, healthy lifestyles. With the theme of “Living Well in the City,” the focus of this year’s event will be on emergency preparedness as well as on promoting healthy kids and adults within their community.

Over thirty organizations will offer health screenings such as blood pressure, diabetes, flu shots, and rapid HIV testing from Noon until 2:30 p.m. for individuals ages 13 and older with a valid photo ID. There will be interactive activities, raffles for two bike giveaways, gift cards and other items. The event will also feature DJ music, line dancing, a moon bounce, FREE books, snacks and a FREE lunch.

In addition to the WHPC and Healthy Wilmington 2020, this year’s sponsors include the Mayor’s Office, the Department of Parks and Recreation, Christiana Care Health System, St. Francis Healthcare, Peace Week Delaware, the Kenny Family Foundation, The Urban Bike Project, and the YWCA. For additional information, contact Shawn R. Baker at (302) 576-3828, or Nora Katurakes at (302) 623-4628.
