Health Fair & Sports Bash PART 1, 3/2013

It’s been over a decade since I could sit in the pews of a church and actually grow more and more fond of the church. A place that teaches me to expect more than just social justice and amazing messages… Anyways, perhaps another day.

On this day, they blocked off one block on Jones between Eddy and Turk for a huge Sports Bash for kids. Around the corner at 240 Turk they held a Health Fair for free vaccinations, dental care, clothes, etc for the adults.

At the Sports Bash:

They had soccer…
Strategizing.

Also during the half-time show was a Strong Man!! But before we begin, he asked for some volunteers.

Is there any doubt as to who got picked as one of the volunteers?

She was quite shy when actually in the front, but she was not to be fooled. She answered all his quickfire questions, including one he tried to sneak in there about him being good looking!

Testing to see if it's real.

Check out this girl’s reaction when she was told what he would be doing with her…

Strong Man was also strong in more ways than just his physical strength. He also came with an amazing testimony of his bullied childhood that captivated the audience and brought many of them to tears.
