Fit and Strong Together (FAST) Community Coalition Free Wellness Testing
Corning YMCA Gymnasium during the Healthy Kids Day
The Fit and Strong Together (FAST) Community Coalition in Corning, N.Y., invites area residents to participate in a free wellness testing opportunity as part of the “Know Your Health Numbers” initiative.
FAST will offer the following free wellness tests on a first-come-first-served basis, no advance registration required:
- Blood pressure
- Body mass index (BMI)
- Body fat percentage
- Total cholesterol - For the most accurate total cholesterol test results, a 5-hour fast is recommended. A drop of blood will be drawn for this test.
The public may choose to participate in any or all of these tests and results will be available immediately.
Know Your Health Numbers is sponsored in part by United Healthcare, Guthrie and the United Way of the Southern Tier.
Created in early 2009, Fit and Strong Together (FAST) is a collaborative of community organizations and individuals focused on improving childhood fitness and reducing childhood obesity and includes representatives from the Corning-Painted Post School District Foundation, Corning Incorporated Foundation, Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes, Guthrie, Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, Steuben Rural Health Network and Steuben County Public Health Department.
