Omega Kappa Zeta participated in the 2nd annual Health Fair at Progressive Community Church in Stockton, CA. They had a variety of healthcare, fitness, mental health services, nutrition, and children activities. We shared information about Autism and the special education process. We met people who had their own experiences with Autism, including a mother whose daughter was able navigate the Autism spectrum and was away at college. This mother was very proud of her daughter and wishes more people understood that Autism was not a disease, but a different way to view the world.

Family Skate Fitness Night
Blue and White family skate night was held, September 28th, at Stockton Indoor Sports Complex. We had about 50 people ranging in ages from 5 to 50 roll, bounce, and skate the night away. We had a blast skating and did even notice that we were burning hundreds of calories.
According to the American Heart Association, roller skating is ranked among the best aerobic exercises and is equivalent to bicycling and jogging as a cardio workout. Roller skating is a workout that involves almost all of the body’s muscles and in particular the heart and it works most of the major muscle groups – glutes, quads, abdomen, calves and arms.

Black Family Day, Stockton
The ladies of Omega Kappa Zeta partnered with the Mocha Autism Network at Black Family Day in Stockton.
Did you know that children of color are being diagnosed up to 3 years later than other children? Well, most of the people we spoke with at Black Family Day did not know. We shared information to help dispel myths associated with autism and had activities for children to teach them how to be friends with children who have autism.
