Gramercy Research Group to hold community-wide physical activity event

Gramercy Research Group is hosting its first ever Physical Activity Community Extravaganza (P.A.C.E.). This event will provide the community with health screenings and information, games, giveaways, music, fun and more. Attendees are encouraged to bring their bicycles and wear walking shoes. The Newell Massey Greenway will be available for cyclists and walkers looking to enjoy a beautiful day.

The staff at Gramercy Research Group envisions a fun environment for community members and leaders to congregate. They want each participant to gain valuable knowledge about their health as well as health disparities throughout the county. “This will be a great opportunity for the East Winston community to come together and be physically active. We hope that this event will provide people with the tools and resources to begin changing behaviors that cause health disparities,” said Jonathan Collins, Project Coordinator for Gramercy Research Group.

This event will be held at the Ray Agnew Field Complex below the Winston Lake YMCA on Sunday, June 8th 2014 from 2pm to 5pm. This event is supported by grant funds from UCLA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
