The Nashville Church of Scientology will host a Community Fitness Fair for World Health Day in early April, 2016.
“Shape Up and Be Happy: A Community Fitness Fair” will be held in early April at the Nashville Church of Scientology. Organizers for the event are excited to give people a better understanding of how to take care of themselves. 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.
Rev. Brian Fesler, pastor of the Nashville Church of Scientology, says this has to change. “There is a definite need in our communities for proper education on how to be healthy, eat right and stay fit,” he says, “This fair will bring in a panel of speakers who can help with this.”
“Shape Up and Be Happy” takes place in the community hall of the Nashville Church of Scientology in early April. The general public is invited to participate and organizations requesting booth space should contact Julie Brinker at 615-687-4600.
The Church works closely with the Drug-Free South which will be represented at the Fitness Fair, providing education on the truth about drugs. Fesler said, “You can’t have overall health and wellness with harmful street drugs in your system, and the Drug-Free South is working hard to spread that message around the state.” Other educational initiatives for a healthy lifestyle will be represented, including tips for eating and exercising.
