CTHA Partners With Procter & Gamble's Wellness Brand Meta and the City of Memphis on Adult Fitness Zone
In October 2015, CTHA and the City of Memphis' Division of Parks &Neighborhoods held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to introduce the Adult Fitness Zone to the community. The Adult Fitness Zone is the culmination of CTHA's partnership with Procter & Gamble's wellness brand Meta, and a perfect example of bringing public and private parties together to create something valuable for all residents of Memphis.
P&G's Associate Director of Communications, Michelle Vaeth, praised our city and county for its efforts to encourage citizens to take small steps to improve their health. Frequent Audubon Park visitors demonstrated the new equipment for attendees.
WREG reporter Markova Reed covered the ribbon cutting of the Adult Fitness Zone as part of Channel Three's Bright Spot segment that features positive things happening in Memphis. To view the clip, please click here.
