Car show supports men’s health

Hundreds of hotted up cars will head to Bargo Sports Club for a special event next weekend.

Community Links Wollondilly will host a family fun day, bike and car show to raise awareness for men’s health on Sunday, June 18.

Bargo Sports Club function manager Vanessa Vardy said the event was a good chance to recognise the issues men face.

“You don’t hear a lot about men’s health like you do about women’s health,” she said.

“It’s important to raise awareness about it.”

The Car and Bike Show is not the only thing families can enjoy.

The event will also feature live performances by Jemma Beech and Gus Harris, free health checks, a rock climbing wall, a free raffle, community stalls and much more.

“It’s a pretty good cause and a great day out for families,” Ms Vardy said.

Children can also enjoy a jumping castle, face-painting and more.

A Community Links spokeswoman said a healthy body and healthy mind has become a focus for men’s health in Australia.

“Men are less likely than women to manage their health, both physically and emotionally – therefore it is important to help men keep the balance,” she said.

“Health professionals believe that the best way to improve men’s health is for local services, groups and individuals to tackle the most important health issues relevant to local blokes.”

The event will be held from 11am to 3pm at Bargo Sports Club, 3580 Remembrance Driveway, Bargo.
