Parrish Healthcare proud presenting sponsor of the Smile from Within Event was held on Saturday

Smile from Within, an event aimed to bring into the light resources promoting healthy minds and bodies, and destroying stigmas surrounding mental health and addiction was held Saturday, March 11, at Gibson Center Fields in Titusville. Parrish Healthcare was proud to be the presenting sponsor for the free community event that drew hundreds. Smile From Within was the result of a partnership with Brevard Prevention Coalition’s ALL BLACK and Move Into The Light initiatives and the Hassell Foundation.

“Here, today, in an environment of joy and fellowship, Brevard Prevention Coalition, All Black and the Hassell Foundation are helping people learn things we all need to know, said Robert Jordan, chairman of the Parrish Medical center board of directors. Supporting events like Smile from Within is one more way we serve to extend the reach of our vision of Healing Families—Healing Communities®. “Parrish Healthcare is proud—and, indeed, grateful—to be the presenting sponsor of Smiles from Within,” added Jordan.

Children ages five to 15 participated in free football and cheer camps. Former National Football League players Marcus Maye, Bennet Jackson, DJ Montgomery, Willie Harvey, Sheldrick Redwine, and Shak Taylor joined TJ Hassell to share their experiences with aspiring young football players, while former NFL cheerleader Khamare Farrar led the cheer camp.
