Nashville, TN, January 16, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- According to Nashville.gov, the city faces statistics such as 36 percent of its youth being obese or overweight, and according to America’s Health Rankings, Tennessee is ranked 43 on the list for overall health. This has to change, and Rev. Brian Fesler of the Nashville Church of Scientology has an idea to help--a community fitness fair. “We’ve been to several health fairs which primarily focus on preventing or dealing with disease, but there is a need in our communities to educate everyone on how to be healthy, eat right and stay fit,” he says.
“Shape Up and Be Happy: A Community Fitness Fair” will take place in the community hall of the Nashville Church of Scientology on April 7th. The community is invited to participate and organizations requesting booth space should get in touch with Julie Brinker at 615-687-4600.
The Church supports the Foundation for a Drug-Free World which will be represented at the Fitness Fair, providing education on the truth about drugs. Other educational initiatives for a healthy lifestyle will be represented, including best practices for eating and exercising.
“We’re excited about the event,” says Fesler, “we want a healthy Nashville, and the best way to help people is to educate them.”
