EVERY DAY IS AN OPPORTUNITY
CDM Mind and Body is a day-long health and fitness event sponsored by Christ Deliverance Ministry (CDM), a faith-based, non-profit organization dedicated to serving the St. Louis community.
In 2010, members of the CDM congregation, led by Pastor Cynthia Ringo, made it their mission to help one another achieve their goals of getting healthy and losing weight. To accomplish this, the group participated in boot camp classes led by Briant K. Mitchell at BKM Boot camp. What transpired over the next few years was awe-inspiring: With the support of each other, the 16 members of the boot camp group have lost more than 600 pounds and counting!
After witnessing the success of her boot camp group (and experiencing weight loss herself), Pastor Ringo wanted to challenge the community to get healthy as well. With her son, Tommie Jr., Mind and Body was born.
Mission of CDM Mind and Body:
Mind and Body seeks to instill a lifestyle change in St. Louis by educating the community on proper nutrition and helping them to implement a winning workout regimen. The event takes place at Tower Grove Park – Sons of Rest Shelter – East Gate Entrance OFF Grand Ave in Midtown St. Louis and includes a 5K race (which weaves through the streets of Grand Center), fitness challenge, healthy living seminar, and lifestyle vendors.
