Thank you Coach Mat for another fantastic program. My son accomplished what he set out to do, run his first 5k! I saw him becoming more and more confident. You always go above and beyond and I truly appreciate it!

My patient is a 69 year old woman in the Pre-Diabetes Prevention Program. She lost nearly 20 lbs and is out of the pre-diabetes category. These programs work and I am grateful to be a part of this amazing joint effort!

This program helped Josiah so much, his teacher noticed a significant improvement when he went back to school in the fall. We are so blessed to have had this opportunity.
