Wichita, KS -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/18/2018 --Rodney Steven II, influential local entrepreneur and Owner/President of Genesis Health Clubs, today announced "Play Healthy ICT" today in partnership with Tobacco Free Wichita. The free event will take place April 21st at OJ Watson Park, located at 3022 S. McClean Blvd, Wichita, KS from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Rodney Steven, a lifelong health and fitness enthusiast, expressed excitement about the event.

Unfortunately, obesity, sedentary lifestyles and smoking are still all epidemics in this country. It's time to show our kids a better way."

We're giving kids all over Wichita the chance to get out, get active and have fun. It's family-friendly, and they'll have the chance to join in and give back to the community firsthand."
