In my profession as a medicaid/disability advocate. I noticed people were getting chronic illnesses at a younger age. So I started teaching free fitness/nutrition classes in a local recreation center. I had a class for adults, then I added another for the youth. I noticed that kids were eager to learn an try new healthy treats but some days only few would show up. So I decided to take the classes into their neighborhoods/ communities. So they could walk to class/workshop.
