The fifth annual Mayor’s Your First Wealth is Your Health event took place on Aug. 10 in the village of Urbancrest. For four hours, citizens were able to be screened for high blood pressure and diabetes, observe proper fire safety protocols with the Jackson Township Fire Department, and take a bike around the neighborhood to burn some calories. Shown here are a few scenes from the healthy living event.
