WBNS-10TV is excited to host the fifth annual 10TV Health & Fitness Expo on Saturday, August 16 and Sunday, August 17.

The two-day public event is provided to help central Ohioans learn more about how to live longer and more vital lives by connecting with experts from more than 100 health, wellness and medical companies, plus a range of participatory activities and health displays designed to help people get on a path to better health.


“As Central Ohio’s News Leader, we’ve had a long-standing commitment to help improve the health and well-being of our community,” said 10TV President and General Manager John Cardenas. “We’re happy to again provide the Expo as a means of delivering as many health care resources as possible for our community in a single event and offer tangible benefits to central Ohioans that they can take with them to live healthier and happier lives.”

Highlights of the Expo include:

• Health screenings
• Health and wellness information
• Dance and fitness demonstrations
• Maria’s Message booth & simulators
• Million Step Challenge- For Better Health
• Commit to Be Fit Zone
• Rock Climbing Wall
• Healthy cooking demonstrations

The Expo will offer many free or discounted health screenings such as diabetes, heart testing, hearing, cholesterol and dozens of other preventive services, plus family-fun attractions like a chance to become a 10TV sports reporter for the day.

Kristyn Hartman, Jerry Revish and others from the 10TV on-air team will also be on site to meet and greet attendees.

This year, 10TV is pleased to welcome celebrity guest and legendary rocker Bret Michaels, Shelley Meyer, Jared Fogle (The Subway Guy), Julie Voris, and sports legends Coach John Cooper, Scoonie Penn and two-time Heisman trophy winner Archie Griffin, presented by Ricart Automotive. Hall of Fame and former OSU football head coaches Earle Bruce and John Cooper will also appear and are presented by Ricart Automotive.


Bret Michaels, the legendary front man for Poison, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 6. In recent years, he underwent brain and heart surgery, which forced him to take a hard look at improving his own health. Now, he’s concentrating on diet, exercise and having the right mental approach to living healthy, and shares his story with expo visitors.

Admission to the Expo is just $5.00 at the door or complimentary tickets can be picked up at any central Ohio Subway location while supplies last. All proceeds benefit the 10TV Family Fund.
