Giving back through life-changing experiences.
Our Directors, John and Linda Cook have been entrepreneurs in the Yuma Community since 1981. Dr. Cook practiced as an orthodontist for 40 years and Linda Cook, owned and operated Mostly Muffins for 20 years. She was awarded the ATHENA Leadership Award in 2002 for "achieving the highest level of professional excellence and contributing to the quality of life of others in the community." The Cook's--are also proud parents of 5 children and 11 grandchildren.
During the COVID-19 shut down, we asked "What Can We Do to Make a Difference in the Health of Our Community?" For the past 20 years we have focused on nutrition education and achieving wellness through exercise and movement. Medical research now proves we can make a DIFFERENCE by making smart NUTRITION choices and making MOVEMENT a part of every day! Through our foundation, we can share our Lifestyle Change Programs to achieve improved Lifetime Wellness.
To "Give Back," we focus on providing nutrition and exercise programs to our community, resulting in the quality of life, extension of life, and improved immunity to disease. Programs are based on medical and scientific information. We call it "Exercience!"
We are seeking physician referrals of adults and children who are at risk for chronic diseases like Type 2 Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome Disorders. We offer the "Scared Fit," program and "Prevent Type 2 Diabetes for All."
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
