THE STORY:

The Jim White Community Fitness Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded by Jim White in 2010 after he received an anonymous gift of $5000. A JWCFF initiative, Lifting Spirits, Improving Bodies, Feeding Souls, Transforming Lives (LIFT) was established in 2014 and provides an avenue for those in need (low income, homeless, etc) to get back on their feet by gaining confidence and motivation through improved fitness and nutrition. The organization holds food, clothing and shoe drives throughout the year but is also in need of monetary donations. To learn more about the Jim White Community Fitness Foundation, please visit www.jwfitnessfoundation.com or email info@jwfitnessfoundation.com with your questions!

My involvement in the LIFT program has been to encourage, support and workout alongside these incredibly determined individuals. It's inspiring to hear their stories and see the pains they are all taking to turn their lives around. What's great about this program is that it doesn't just run these individuals through weekly workouts; Jim White and his volunteer experts teach the LIFT participants how to continue living a healthy lifestyle once the one-month course is over. Every participant receives a pedomitor, a water bottle, healthy snacks and recipes for healthy snacks. They graduate from the program with a sense of accomplishment and they are empowered to continue their wellness journey! As a mental health professional, I've worked with low income populations for many years and find that overall physical health and nutrition are greatly overlooked in this population, despite the fact that these elements play a key role in their daily performance of household and work-related tasks. This program meets a need that has not been otherwise met in the community!
