Mayor's Field Day Lineup - A Fitness Sampler Platter

The Mayor’s Field Day is sure to be a fun-filled, activity packed day and we at ACTIVEBUYS have pulled together a fitness “sampler platter.” Our goal is to introduce our members   to fun and unique forms of exercise in order to help everyone find what they enjoy.  When you enjoy it, you stick with it. With music pumping, bodies moving and energy soaring, ACTIVEBUYS is planning for a day full of smiles, laughter and “Ah-Ha!” moments as you realize being healthy doesn’t mean you have to eat lettuce and run on a treadmill. Finding something you enjoy and actually want to do is half the battle. That’s when it becomes addictive, satisfying and fun. Krank will kick off the day showcasing their signature Krank class. Then

Mayor's Field Day: Come Play Where The Titans Play

Mayor's Field Day: Come Play Where The Titans Play

Back in 2011, Metro Nashville Mayor Karl Dean challenged the citizens of Nashville to live a more active and healthy life!  Not only did he do this with words, but the city secured funding and devoted it to a city-wide effort that was eventually coined, NashVitality.  The Mayor's first two events, “Walk 100 Miles with the Mayor” and the “Mayor’s Challenge 5K Walk/Run”, both drew over 10,000 people and kickstarted an amazing movement in the city.       Fast forward to 2012 and the Mayor has taken it a step further to create an event that aims to get both adults and children jazzed and enthused about getting out and getting active.  On May 5, 2012, the Titans and Mayor Karl Dean will host the Mayor's Field Day at LP Field.  This event is sure to a day filled with fun, excitement and, best of all, it ...

Soup Sunday 2012 - One Savory Event for a Great Cause

Last Sunday, February 26, 2012, Our Kids held its annual fundraiser, Soup Sunday.  Over 50 local restaurants participated in a soup tasting that left you wanting more!  There were entries such as Spring Chicken Soup from Burger Up, She Crab Soup from Fish and Company, Curried Sweet Potato with Lime Crema and Spiced Pepitas from the Silly Goose and many more.  Taking the top honors of all these delectable entries was the Habenero Crab Bisque from Broadway Brewhouse Midtown while the most creative honor went to Noshville with their Reuben Soup.
