Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton will hold a health and wellness fair on its campus on Saturday, June 15.

The fair will coincide with the hospital’s Community Health Walk.

“Our vision for this year’s walk and health fair is to bring together organizations from our community to showcase the many local opportunities to stay active and well,” said hospital spokesman Jason Bouffard.

The event begins with a 5-kilometer walk through Milton, beginning and ending at the hospital campus at 10 a.m. A shorter 1-mile option is offered, as well.

Funds raised from the walk will be distributed back to the community in the form of grants to support local health and wellness programs.

After the walk, local health exhibitors will be present at the hospital campus and inflatable “jumpables” and outdoor games will be present for children.

There will be prize drawings, and all participants will receive a complimentary lunch.

For more information, call the hospital at 617-313-1557 or email jason_bouffard@miltonhospital.org.
