The Big Island Substance Abuse Council (BISAC) invites the community to attend its seventh annual Summer Jam and Fitness Fair event on Saturday, July 27, at the Afook-Chinen Civic Auditorium in Hilo.

The event is free and suitable for all ages. Activities will include a strong man and strong woman contest, powerlifting and bus pull challenges, food, keiki rides and activities, and a health and fitness fair.

This year’s Summer Jam will also celebrate BISAC’s 55th birthday. The Office of Hawaiian Affairs has awarded BISAC a $2,500 grant in support of the event.

“I am full of gratitude for the ongoing support of OHA to help us with our annual Summer Jam event,” said BISAC CEO Dr. Hannah Preston-Pita. “Our Summer Jam will have a little bit of everything for everyone.”
