Nunley Student Services Center, 7625 Fenton St. Takoma Park, MD 20912.

This year’s theme, “M.O.V.E.! Make Obesity Virtually Extinct” will encourage people to be more active in order to maintain a healthy body weight. Community Day will feature several exciting group fitness activities such as Zumba, KaribFit, (Caribbean & African dance fitness), GoGo Fitness, Hand Dancing workshops, and Hip Hop Fitness; FREE health screenings for blood pressure, BMI (body mass index), cardiovascular health, cholesterol, diabetes, and blood glucose; HIV testing; presentations on healthy cooking and eating; delicious and nutritious food samples; activities for children and much, much more. Community Day is guaranteed fun for the entire family in celebration of life and good health.

Our opening ceremony will include an African drumming performance by Jabari Exum, the drumming and fight scene choreographer for the movie Black Panther. We encourage everyone to show their African heritage pride much like the opening week of the Black Panther movie via fashion, love and enthusiasm.
