West Logan on the Move is part of the West Virginia on the Move health project designed to improve health, fitness and activity in communities across the Mountain State. A few years ago Logan County was chosen as a pilot program for the rest of the state when communities like West Logan and Man were able to get good turnouts for the initial walks.
"This year, we are teaming up with Logan Regional Medical Center," Adkins told members of the West Logan Town Council on Monday evening. "They will be sending representatives to the walk to do a small health fair, which will feature free blood screenings for blood glucose levels and blood pressure as well as other services."
Adkins said she was happy that Logan Regional Medical Center agreed to come on board with the event, giving it the potential to be bigger and better than ever before.
"We are so lucky to have their assistance," Adkins said.
The event will take place on May 2 from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the West Logan Church of God's new shell building.
Adkins said there will be representatives from other agencies and organizations there to have a resource fair as well.
"We want everybody to be aware of this event and we want to invite the entire county. This is for everyone in Logan County's benefit, not just West Logan," she said. "It's a good thing in that it offers free health services and a chance to get moving and improve your health and your quality of life."
