Petersburg, VA church outreaches for health and wellness

picture V and G health fairI wanted to give a big shout out to Tabernacle Baptist Church, 418 Halifax St. in Petersburg, VA!  They held their second annual Bridge the Health Gap Joy Run/Walk 5K and 2K event this morning.  It was A.W.E.S.O.M.E!

Although they already had vendors lined up for the day, they allowed us to register our vendor table on short notice.  Thank you!

Optima Health and Capital Area Health Network were large sponsors for this community health fair, providing cholesterol, BMI, and blood pressure screenings along with other health education.  Other vendors also contributed with information on elderly care in the region, rehab facilities, physical trainers, medical imaging, nutritional supplements, smart eating and nutrition, and even a local group helping children in foster care.

Reverend Dr. Diggs, Donald Barrow, Dee Johnson, and all the countless others, thank you, thank you! Thank you for having a heart for your community, for using your church to meet physical and spiritual needs, and for the energy and time to organize such an event for the community.
