Pair of Modesto events focus on health and safety


Children learned about being healthy at a pair of events hosted by Modesto churches Sunday. The Well, a congregation in east Modesto, put on Care 4 Kids.

It had information about asthma, scoliosis, car seats, dental health and other topics, along with demonstrations of a medevac helicopter and other lifesaving equipment. Children also had fun with laser tag, a police K-9 team, a martial arts demonstration and more. The downtown Seventh-day Adventist Church held a Health and Wellness Community Fair. It featured health screenings, a petting zoo, a bounce house, a climbing wall, safety tips, food samples and other attractions.
