Community Health Project
Physical activities including walking, basketball, and volleyball, among others, are key to the development of healthy living. This project is among the key pillars of eliminating health and education disparities through research and partnerships. Donating to the health project will enable the continuation of physical activities.
The benefits of the health project are as follows:
1. Health benefits. Research from the CDC shows that physical activity improves mental health, helps in balancing body weight, and reduces the risk of contracting lifestyle diseases such as heart disease while at the same time ensuring that individuals can perform their everyday activities.
2. Enhanced Socialization. Participating in walks and playing basketball or volleyball presents an opportunity for making new friends and enables people to foster greater teamwork and networking skills.
3. Promoting recreation. Engaging in physical activity can be enjoyable and stress-relieving. Promoting recreational activities outside of their normal activities (i.e. golfing, fishing, archery) will help to create lifelong recreation activities, maintain healthy lifestyles, build leadership skills, character, and resilience in all areas of life.
Based on the positive benefits of health activities, we are reaching out to ask for your financial support in eliminating health disparities. Your tax-deductible donations will go into projects and initiatives that support the promotion of healthy living.
With your tax-deductible donation, underserved students will receive quality college preparatory services, inclusive of college visits, hands-on innovative academic and social skills, and soft skills training. With your support, students will receive the highest level of college access and success and their dreams of attending college can be effectively realized.
