The United Community Clinic (UCC) would like to invite you to the 14th Annual Parkside Bike Rodeo on September 6th, 2014 from 10am to 1pm. Over 300 residents are expected to come out for the Bike Rodeo— a bike course, health fair, and BBQ, all rolled into one! We hope you will be able to join us for this neighborhood tradition.
This year, children will learn how to tune and fix their bikes and ride on fun bike courses. Mayor Michael Nutter and Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. will make special appearances before a raffle to win free bike helmets and other prizes. UCC volunteers will provide free basic hypertension, eye, and dental screenings to promote annual check-ups. Philadelphia community organizations will also provide free massage, art therapy, and fun exercise activities for kids and parents. Members of the media have been invited to this event as well.
The United Community Clinic, operated by graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Pennsylvania, provides quality preventative health care without charge to residents who need it most. The Bike Rodeo has been a central part of UCC’s partnership with the Parkside community, and we hope you will be able to join us for this event!
