On National Chiropractic Founder’s Day, Sept. 18, doctors and staff at Sparks-based Family First Chiropractic hosted their annual patient appreciation event and fundraiser, this year benefiting Reno-based nonprofit Casa de Vida.

A few weeks later, in honor of National Chiropractic Health Month in October, Family First presented Casa de Vida — which is a part of local nonprofit Eddy House — with a donation of $3,785.50, the result of proceeds from the event’s food truck ticket sales, silent auction and individual and business contributions, according to an Oct. 14 press release.

“At Family First Chiropractic, we’re dedicated to serving our Northern Nevada community, and believe it’s important — now more than ever — to support organizations and causes that help us all live our best, healthiest lives,” Dr. Rick Swecker, owner of the practice, said in a statement. “This month in particular, it was important to us to continue to bring awareness to the value of preventative health care for families and children of all ages.”
