QUINCY, IL – Quincy Medical Group (QMG) along with the Cathedral of Worship in Quincy are excited to announce a new event, Man Up, on Sunday, Aug 29 from 1 – 4 p.m. at Bob Mays Park in Quincy.

A nutritional snack bar will provide a variety of healthy options to keep you nourished throughout the afternoon.

“This past year has taken a toll on all of us, and it’s important we take the time to prioritize our health,” said QMG Chief Medical Officer Dr. Rick Noble. “Man Up gives men of our community an opportunity to gather outdoors and check in with each other and our health, while also enjoying an afternoon of fun.”

Nave Wilson, chief operating officer with Cathedral of Worship, added, “Men of the tri-states are invited to come. We’re taking charge of ourselves, our homes, and our communities. The event on August 29 provides a time for us to start a journey that’s sure to be life-changing. Let’s all begin to make a difference.”
