FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 22, 2014

Senator Brant McCreadie today began his village wellness campaign today in Inarajan. While Senator McCreadie has spent much of his term focusing on the public safety issues facing our island, he has never forgotten his campaign pledge to provide equipment to improve the health and wellness of the people of Guam.  Over the coming weeks and months, Senator McCreadie will donate equipment to a total of 4 village mayors. It is Senator McCreadie’s intent that, through this campaign, island villagers will have access to equipment that will help them engage in a more active lifestyle.

Adds Senator McCreadie, “I pledged in my campaign two years ago to get this much needed equipment into our villages. We all know that the best way to avoid medical issues is through proactive steps to prevention. This donation of equipment is meant to allow residents to engage in those preventative steps to avoid diseases like diabetes, hypertension and others that have been plaguing Guam for years. This donation is a significant first step to provide resources for residents who cannot travel far, or have access, to fitness centers or gyms. I look forward to the equipment being put to good use, and hope to continue this worthwhile campaign to other parts of the island.”
