QUINCY — Quincy Medical Group and the Cathedral of Worship are the hosts of the second Man Up event from 10 a.m. – noon Saturday, Aug. 27 at South Park in Quincy.
This event is free to men of all ages and will offer a morning full of activities such as quick and easy health checks, axe throwing by Quincy Axe Company and food from Big Bro’s BBQ & Catering. Participants can win multiple giveaways and enter into a drawing for a gas grill or a bike.
Man Up provides an opportunity to bring attention to men’s health. QMG will offer health stations monitoring heart and blood pressure checks, BMI, injury prevention, sleep apnea assessments, and mental and financial health information.
QMG Chief Medical Officer Dr. Rick Noble said in a press release, “To improve men’s health, it’s important to raise awareness about recommended preventive screenings along with regular health care for men of all ages. Man Up gives men of our community an opportunity to gather together outdoors, check in with each other and their health, while also enjoying a morning of fun.”
Nave Wilson, chief operating officer with the Cathedral of Worship, added, “I’m super excited to once again be involved with the Man Up event this year. The kickoff in 2021 was a success, and we’re looking to build on that. Cathedral of Worship, along with Quincy Medical Group, is committed to seeing men of all ages become all they can be. We aim to keep pushing men to their desired potential and destiny while keeping the main focus on their entire well-being, targeting the emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of their lives.”
Man Up is sponsored by Merrill Lynch and Knapheide. For more information, visit the Quincy Medical Group Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/QuincyMedGroup.
