Over 600 Families Receive Free Physicals, Thanks to Local Chiropractor

BROOKSVILLE – With the first day of school quickly approaching, parents and students are once again scrambling to buy supplies and schedule appointments for physicals.

Thanks to a local Chiropractic Office and dozens of volunteers, hundreds of students had an opportunity to receive free physicals on Saturday, saving parents a lot of money and long waits at the pediatrician’s office.

Terlep Chiropractic and the Hernando County School District organized the event that took place Saturday at Nature Coast Technical High School. Marketing Director Jimmy McKittrick says the event was a huge success and the line stretched across the courtyard when doors opened at 9:00 a.m.

McKittrick estimates 600 to 700 people attended and upwards of 50 volunteers from various professions helped make the event possible.

A few familiar faces were in attendance, including School Board Member Gus Guadagnino, County Commissioner Diane Rowden, Supervisor of Elections Shirley Anderson, and many more.

McKittrick says “The outpouring of volunteers showed that people really do care about the community.”

The first day of school in Hernando County is Wednesday August 10th.

  • Terlep chiropractor Rocks!!! Havent seen anyone else step up to the plate and help our local children with a FREE physical. Unless i missed it. Its nice to see people helping people in our community. Terlep is by far in my own opinion the BEST chiropractic in Hernando County.

  • I was unable to bring my son on Saturday, but I am sooooooo glad that that many families were able to take advantage of the FREE services. In a Town where a lot of the students are either free or reduced lunch status they don’t have the extra money to get physicals done for each child. So THANK YOU Dr. Terlep for stepping up and having this “Free Physical” day!!!

  • This is what ‘community’ is all about!

    It’s refreshing to see good news here on RNRF.

    For many parents and students, just getting the basic school supplies, clothes and a physical, can be a financial struggle. Seeing people come together to help ease that a bit, is wonderful!
