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.
