Erica Marshall's Story

"We pray for people, and people have testimonies dealing with health issues. But these are preventable issues that they are suffering from. The root cause is poor health decisions and learning how to make better health decisions. So we need to gather as a village to work together to achieve a common goal of physical health. It’s not just losing weight, it’s kingdom building."

— Erica Marshall, participant in the #HealthiestCitiesChallenge
