Summer is a season normally the crime rate going up in cities. St. Louis is no exception. To reduce the crime rate especially in summer, James Clark and Better Family Life in St. Louis are hosting 2013 PeaceFest this Sunday Aug. 25 in Forest Park to raise the awareness of it and also provide families with fun and healthy life style choices. National and regional martial artists and recording artists are joining this meaningful event. As a Tai Chi (Taiji) or martial artist, you can participate it as well.
This fun-filled PeaceFest will have multiple programs that include St. Louis Arch Idol Competition, Derrty Ent. Corkball Tournament , St. Louis Appreciation Softball Classic (St. Louis City Police Officers vs. St. Louis County Officers), St. Louis Softball Challenge Bats and Bandages (St. Louis Children’s Hospital vs. Cardinal Glennon Hospital), The Pulse of Peace 1,000 Citizen Showcase- Slide, Line-Dance, Booper (Larges in Missouri), St. Louis Mid-West All-Star Kick Ball Challenge and many other sport and entertainment events along live entertainment and food booths.
National martial artist and actor Michael Jai White, R&B group Ray, Goodman and Brown, SMASH, R&B and Jazz singer Chante Moore, comedian Darius Bradford, and other entertainment stars will join hosts Therese Marie and Jay Mo for excellent performance.
Locally, Jardena Tiger Green, an international Tai Chi champion, will participate in this event. Jardena said that PeaceFest would be a nice opportunity for us, as martial artists to use the Tai Chi understanding and make an impression with a noble social purpose of developing peace and unity. She thought that it is especially interesting how a fellow martial artist, Michael Jai White would be attending the event to support our community outreach hero James Clark, who is truly an inspiration to many St. Louisians. With that, Jardena has purchased a booth to promote Tai Chi for health and also demonstrate Tai Chi. Clinically proven that Tai Chi can reduce stress and anger in addition to improve health for heart, muscle, bones, immune system, and brain. Jardena encourages other martial artists and Tai Chi practitioners to join Michael Jai White and her to set up your own booth to promote the art and your school or simply go down to the event and join in the festivities. She also welcomes fellow Tai Chi practitioners demonstrate the art at her booth for free.
In case you are interested in participation, you can contact Better Family Life at 314-381-8200 to set up a booth or simple join Jardena to demonstrate your art. This event will take place from 10 am till 8 pm this Sunday at Forest Park.
