Free community event brings health and wellness services directly to Sacramento region residents

Sacramento, Calif. – Republic FC and Sacramento Covered are partnering to host the 21st Annual Healthy Sacramento Day at the club’s home stadium, Heart Health Park, on Saturday, October 23, 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. This free event is designed to bring numerous health and wellness services directly to residents in the region.

The event is open to people of all ages, and services are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Many services will be available, completely free of charge: fruits and vegetables, flu shots, COVID-19 vaccinations (12 years old +), COVID-19 testing, haircuts, HIV testing, basic dental and health screenings, health coverage information, and numerous other health and wellness activities. 

In May, Republic FC and Western Health Advantage partnered to rename the team’s home field Heart Health Park, as part of a collaborative effort to call attention to the importance of community health and wellbeing, in place of the health insurance plan’s name. Heart Health Park has become a community center to drive awareness and action around cardiovascular disease and related ailments. This includes offering heart-healthy concession options, opening the stadium for workouts with local fitness instructors, and engaging with regional non-profits to develop additional resources and programming to put an emphasis on nutrition and an active lifestyle. The Indomitable will be onsite at Saturday’s event to distribute to distribute free match tickets and work with children to develop their soccer skills.

Sacramento Covered is a non-profit organization dedicated to achieving healthcare access and care coordination for all who live in the Sacramento region, with a special focus on the most vulnerable residents. This includes non-English speakers, people who identify as BIPOC (black, indigenous, and/or person of color), non-citizen residents, and Medi-Cal eligible clients.
