One-day festival Saturday in Longview park offering free HIV, blood pressure, glucose screenings

LONGVIEW (KYTX) - Parks maintenance crews freshened up striping today on this ball field at Broughton Park -- all prepping for a kickball tournament.

"Everybody at some point probably played kickball as a kid," says Wayne Allen, project manager of New Traditions for Wellness Pointe Health Clinic.

He's talking about the centerpiece event for Kicking with a Cause, the theme for a one-day festival Saturday morning and afternoon at this southeast Longview park.

It's a fundraiser for Special Health Resources of East Texas, but Wellness Pointe and Longview's NAACP chapter are joining in, offering free HIV tests at Broughton Recreation Center to anyone. The festival begins at 9 a.m. At Broughton Recreation Center and park. That's on Martin Luther King Boulevard a block south of Young Street.
