“FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE”
Buckeye Health and Mid-Ohio Board for an Independent Living Environment (MOBILE) have partnered to bring awareness to the National Senior Health and Fitness Day which is May 29, 2019. The celebration will take place at Nationwide Arena from 10:00a.m. – 2:00p.m. The Executive Director of MOBILE, Dr. Johannes J. Christian, will be leading the “Walk with the Doc” which will be a walk around the Concourse of Nationwide Arena.
For those who are not familiar with Dr. Christian, he is the Executive Director of MOBILE Disability Resource Center and Pastor Emeritus of Adoration and Peace Baptist Church. He is also CEO of The Face of Forgiveness, LLC. After a teen hurled a rock from an I-70 overpass, it crashed through Dr. Christian’s windshield and left him blind and all the bones in his face were crushed. He endured over 30 surgeries, due to this incident. We can thank him and Ohio law makers for the protective fences which were installed throughout Ohio over all interstate overpasses after this incident. Dr. Christian is an inspiration to all who meets him and even though he has physical limitations he does not allow those limitations to prevent him from being of service to his community. Dr. Christian recently received a Resolution in Honor of Dr. Johannes J. Christian Award which was presented to him by both the Local and National Chapter of the MOLES.
