Healthworks Community Fitness November 2019 Appeal:
Every year, Healthworks Community Fitness asks for the support of the Healthworks members, staff, vendors, and the larger community. Since our prescription program is gaining recognition, we are raising funds to support the new partnership and Physician Exercise Prescription Program with Boston Medical Center.
This program helps patients diagnosed with chronic diseases (type 2 diabetes, hypertension, obesity, asthma) prevent and manage their diagnosis with exercise.
100% of the funds raised will go towards subsidizing Healthworks Community Fitness physician referral memberships at HCF to kick-start a female patient's journey to wellness.
Any donation amount is welcome. Your donations impact prospective Healthworks Community Fitness members who receive exercise referrals from primary care physicians as follows:
Thank you in advance for your support!
