Power of Health Expo & Power of Play 5K

Saturday, April 28, 2018
Bristol Regional Medical Center

The Power of Health Expo and Power of Play 5K is a partnership of Ballad Health, Bristol Tennessee City Schools and Bristol Virginia Public Schools.

By teaming up, we can focus on the benefits of good health and fitness at all ages.

About the Expo

8 a.m. – noon

A healthier, fuller, better life is in your reach.

At the Power of Health Expo, you’ll have access to:

  • Free heart and vascular screenings for the first 50 qualifying callers (must be 45 or older)
  • Health and wellness vendors
  • Giveaways…

…all designed to help you make that healthier, fuller, better life happen.

Special guest speaker, Todd Kelly Sr.

We’ll also welcome guest speaker Todd Kelly Sr. to the stage. Kelly’s athletic success at the University of Tennessee led to his drafting by the San Francisco 49ers in 1993 and a Super Bowl Championship ring in 1995.

Following that triumph, he played for the Atlanta Falcons and Cincinatti Bengals before returning to Knoxville to raise his family. Kelly now stays active in church, football and youth empowerment programs.

Register for a screening.

Please call 833-8-BALLAD (833-822-5523) to register for a heart and vascular screening at the expo. Spaces are limited, so schedule your screening in advance.
