The Church of Scientology held a Community Fitness Fair for World Health Day in early April, 2019.
Online PR News – 09-April-2019 – Nashville, TN – Drug-Free Tennessee and the Church of Scientology Nashville organized a community fitness fair in observance of World Health Day. Nonprofit and health-minded organizations set up booths at the fair to promote wellness.
Some 36 percent of Nashville youth are obese or overweight, and of the 50 states, Tennessee ranks 43rd in overall health.
Those attending were interested in strategies for the community to work together to increase overall health.
Rev. Brian Fesler of the Church of Scientology Nashville emceed the event and had several health professionals speak about ways for the community to work together. "There is a need in our communities to educate everyone on how to be healthy, eat right and stay fit," said Rev. Fesler.
In keeping with the fair's slogan, "Shape Up: A Community Fitness Fair," those participating promoted drug prevention, nutrition, weight loss, HIV prevention, and other health-related activities.
The Church of Scientology supports the Foundation for a Drug-Free World and its local chapter, Drug-Free Tennessee. "You can't have overall health with drugs in your system," said Fesler, "and Drug-Free Tennessee has the educational materials people need to understand this."
