MIAMI, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- It is our sincere pleasure to inform the press, our media partners & community of the spectacular success the 2013 Miami Family Event Wellness and Lifestyle Expo had on the weekend of September 20-22, 2013 at the Fair Expo Center.  This 3 day South Florida Community Event brought together the whole family and offered valuable lifestyle, health and wellness information, important seminars, necessary screenings, live performances, delicious food, fun and excitement to all ages by our generous sponsors and partners.

The Miami Family Event was able to provide our community with local social services, health resources, screenings, useful information and tools for all members of the family, teaching them how to acquire the solutions to improve their health & lifestyles. This Wellness and Lifestyle Expo featured exciting activities, CPR classes, healthy cooking demonstrations, and fitness programs for children, adults and seniors. It began with a Kick off VIP party and included special guest performances by Willy Chirino, Elain, Carlos Manuel & 2Nyce to name a few. Plus special guest appearances from Adriana Catano, Maria Elivira Salazar, Paola Guanche, and countless TV and Radio personalities that came to represent their brands and express the importance of healthy living to their fans and followers.   

As a result of all the sponsors, community partners and general public coming together, the Miami Family Event was able to donate $25,000.00 to the American Heart Association-Go Red for Women, presented by Natalie Baro who was named 2014 chairwoman for the Go Red for Women Campaign.

The American Heart Association is the nation's oldest, largest voluntary organization devoted to fighting cardiovascular diseases and strokes. Founded by six cardiologists in 1924, their organization now includes more than 22.5 million volunteers and supporters working tirelessly to eliminate these diseases. They fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving tools and information to prevent heart disease. Also partnered with the AHA and the Miami Family Event, was One Beat CPR and Restart-The Heart demonstrating how to properly perform CPR and the procedures to take in an emergency situation.  

With over 140 corporate sponsors, 30 media sponsors, and a traffic count of over 21,000 in three days, we are committed to making the Miami Family Event an annual event for the entire community to come together to celebrate the little things in life that truly matter like our health & happiness.
