“It’s very exciting,” McGee said of the Juneteenth event. “It kind of speaks to us getting back to some normalcy, getting through the pandemic and being healthy. I think AxessPointe getting our participants checked is vital to what we are trying to do.

“Getting out and promoting a healthy lifestyle, getting out and staying active, really just bringing some camaraderie and some fellowship in the community. This will be for all of us, our first event held after the pandemic, so just want to make sure we are bringing the community together, doing some positive things in the community and celebrating fathers and their kids.”

Free health screenings are provided to all participants at the 2019 7-on-7 Fathers & Flags flag football tournament. The event returns to St.Vincent-St. Mary High School on June 19.
