Cancer Services Inc. presented its first “Body + Soul Saturday” on Oct. 27 at Piney Grove Baptist Church.
The day of fun, great food and activity was designed to motivate and encourage people to eat well, be active and enjoy life. Experts recommend eating at least five cups of fruits and vegetables every day and exercising at least thirty (30) minutes a day as a way to reduce one’s cancer risk by 30-40 percent.
Body + Soul Saturday urged participants to adopt these healthy habits. Chef Irvin Williams of NOLA Catering cooked vegetables that were seasoned with olive oil and spices. His food was a big hit.
Katina Rice and Dance Fit Divas led the crowd in a 45-minute energetic dance routine that left participants feeling fit and inspired. Rev. Clee, a Christian comedian, provided entertainment. He had attendees in stitches with his a routine that centered heavily around church folks. There were also a number of free giveaways and prizes awarded.
