“I want to impact millions of people to not only live this healthy lifestyle but to enjoy it,” said Jacques Laventure, known as the Naked Chef from MTV.

Laventure who has been cooking since he was 10 years old, has traveled across the country spreading his healthy message at various fitness expos. His tasty vegetarian delights have been featured everywhere from Go Red Campaigns to special events for his Haitian heritage.

On Saturday, October 3rd, Laventure, Chef Cassondra Armstrong and Chef Rhonda Sweet, will bring their healthy cooking demos to the 14th Sister to Sister Fitness Festival at the Alan E. Sims Cedar Hill Recreation Center, 310 East Parkerville Road, Cedar Hill, Texas.

“This year’s Sister to Sister Fitness Festival is going to be one of the most powerful fitness events to hit the southern sector of Dallas County,” said Sylvia Dunnavant, Founder of the Celebrating Life Foundation.

The Festival will begin with an aerobic workout at 8:00 AM, the 5k walk/run will begin promptly at 8:30 AM.
