Inspire Wellness Initiative Annual Campaign

We believe that together we can create a healthier community. Funds raised through our Inspire Wellness Initiative Annual Campaign allow Family Wellness to support needs based community wellness programs to help people cook well, move well, and live well for life. Programs focusing on the 3 cook well, move well, and live well pillars battle chronic disease and support health by inspiring and building healthy habits today to create healthy futures for tomorrow.

Cook Well: Hands on programs like Healthy Cooking in the Classroom teaches Kids in all Fargo, Moorhead, and West Fargo public elementary schools the importance of healthy eating by building confidence in the kitchen and creating lifelong healthy cooking skills. Move Well: Exercise, nutrition, and health education programs like Parkinson’s and Exercise is Medicine, help address and manage chronic diseases such as obesity, heart disease, cancer, Parkinson’s, and diabetes, and lead to improved health outcomes. Family Wellness also provides inclusive opportunities for kids with special needs, including Adaptive Swim Lessons, to ensure all kids develop essential skills for a lifetime of safety, confidence, and physical activity around water. Live Well: Programs like Youth Volunteer Corps provide students with a safe place to learn, volunteer, and to establish healthy habits. The Family Support Program provides relief to families who have a loved one in the hospital or patients who have been diagnosed with illnesses like cancer, depression, and anxiety so they have facility access to relieve stress and improve overall health. Your support helps sustain and develop these programs for years to come.

By providing programs that impact a community need, Family Wellness creates a place where health and healing connect with people, programs, and facilities. When we commit to a life of wellness, we are able to unlock the potential within us and inspire others to find their own inner strength. In short, togetherness is wellness.
