CHICAGO – Health screenings, giveaways, live entertainment and family activities will be available at this year’s Family Health & Fitness Fair, hosted by State Senator Mattie Hunter (D-Chicago).

Held at the Illinois Institute of Technology for the eighteenth year in a row, with the exception of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this grand event will feature free immunizations, school supplies and haircuts. Approximately 80 vendors will participate - the most in the event’s history.

“We’ve been doing this for a long time now, and every year I am excited to get our community together and provide them with a plethora of services,” Hunter said. “Like always, there’s a ton of activities for people of all ages to enjoy, from hair braiding and haircuts to massages and getting your ID. So come out, you won’t regret it!”

It will be co-hosted by the Illinois Institute of Technology, the Institute for Positive Living, State Representative Lamont Robinson (D-Chicago) and Cook County Commissioner Dennis Deer, with ComEd, University of Chicago, TASC, Inc., Friend Health, Kates Security, Illinois Lottery, Insight Hospital, Pepsico, National Kidney Foundation and Nekritz Amdor Andersson Group as the sponsors of the event.

“Illinois Tech is thrilled to once again host this event,” said Adrienne Irmer, Illinois Tech’s associate vice president of external affairs. "We are proud to help create a safe space for the community to visit our campus and be connected to important health and wellness resources.”

This fair will also feature services such as shredding, electronics recycling and state ID purchases, with certain services requiring proof of identity and Chicago residency. In addition, guests will be entertained with performances by the World Champion Jesse White Tumblers and many more.
