Even with these successes, there are still so many communities in southern West Virginia that do not have opportunities to lead physically active and healthy lives.
Donations of any size are appreciated and needed. Here are just a few examples of what your donation could support.
$50 supports a Kids Run Club with a water cooler, cups, and equipment.
$100 supports CPR First Aid training, First Aid kit, and gear for a volunteer Community Captain to lead their free physical activity program.
$250 supports new equipment and maintenance for programs such as our free bike and stand-up paddle board programs.
$500 supports employers to participate in an evidenced-based, 6-week Workplace Wellness course, provide cooking demos and nutrition education, workplace signage, and exercise equipment. Whether you’re an employee or employer, you can learn more about creating a culture of health at your Workplace.
$1,000 supports volunteer certifications in REFIT, high fitness, or yoga instruction allowing Community Captains to offer more quality and diverse free physical activity programs to your community.
$5,000 supports an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer to direct and develop our program areas.
