CrossRoadsNews’ annual Health & Wellness Expo at the Mall at Stonecrest connected with thousands of East Metro residents on Jan. 26. Fitness instructors and personal trainers demonstrated fun routines to stay fit, and hospitals, health centers and doctors offered health screenings, information and encouragement to adults and children who want to be healthy.
When the grand prize for a $250 Mall at Stonecrest gift card was drawn, winner Kashmir Howard and daughter Rosalynd broke down in tears.
Howard said they were tears of joy.
“I have been going through some tough times,” she said afterward. “It came at a great time.”
Howard said her daughter needed shoes and her son needs school clothes. “We went shopping the next day,” she said. “We were too excited to go right after the expo.”
