Quincy Medical Group (QMG), along with the Cathedral of Worship in Quincy, are excited to host the 2nd annual Man Up event on Sunday, Aug 27, from 10 a.m. – noon at South Park in Quincy.

This event is free to men of all ages and will offer a morning full of activities. Quick and easy health checks, axe throwing by Quincy Axe Company, and food from Big Bro’s BBQ & Catering are just a few of the activities. Participants will have a chance to win multiple giveaways and to be entered into a drawing for a gas grill or a bike.

Beyond fun and fellowship, Man Up provides an opportunity to bring attention to men’s health. As part of the day, 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 shared, “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 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.
