The City of Perris has purchased more than 60 bicycles to residents who participate in Saturday’s (April 25) health fair on the City Hall Campus. The new bicycles, purchased from Wal-Mart in Perris, were paid for by donations from corporate sponsors supporting the third annual health fair, part of the ongoing Live Well Perris Health-Eating Active-Living campaign.

Bicycles purchased for the City of Perris’ third annual Health Fair are displayed in front of the City’s iconic fountain. The bikes will be raffled off Saturday, April 25.

The health fair is one of a trio of events taking place April 25 at the City Hall Campus, 101 North D Street. The Perris Elementary School District is hosting its annual 5-kilometer fun run while the American Cancer Society is sponsoring its yearly 24-hour Relay for Life.
