The Nashville Church of Scientology welcomed the community to a Fitness Fair in honor of World Health Day.
A multitude of non-profit and health-minded organizations set up booths to promote overall wellness at a Community Fitness Fair organized by the Drug-Free South and Organized Neighbors of Edgehill and hosted by the Nashville Church of Scientology.
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 of the Nashville Church of Scientology moderated a panel of health professionals during the event for the community, “There is a need in our communities to educate everyone on how to be healthy, eat right and stay fit,” he said.
The event took place under the banner “Shape Up and Be Happy: A Community Fitness Fair.” There were organizations promoting drug prevention, weight loss, chiropractic care, HIV prevention, and much more.
The Church supports the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, which was represented by its Nashville chapter, Drug-Free South, providing education on the truth about drugs. Fesler said, “you can’t have overall health with drugs in your system, and Drug-Free South has the educational materials people need to understand this.”
