INSPIRING WELLNESS IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA

Steppingstone Scholars Middle School Rob.jpg

As most of you know, B Inspired is busy this summer making a difference for 100 Philadelphia public school students from the underserved neighborhoods in North and West Philadelphia. B Inspired is working in partnership with nonprofit Steppingstone Scholars to deliver wellness experiences for middle school kids during their Steppingstones STEAM camp. It has been a tremendous community effort led by B Inspired superstars, Jesse Carolla, Bridget Michener and Nick Case. They have been joined by an army of B Inspired volunteers each day to create a healthy “recess” experience!

We are already in conversations with Steppingstones and Vetri Community Partnership (the nonprofit arm of Vetri), planning for the fall and beyond.  Steppingstones continues to deliver strong academic excellence and support in the local Philadelphia public schools in North and West Philadelphia but they do not have the resources alone to bring wellness education and experiences to the kids. B Inspired and Vetri Community Partnership will work together to bring nutrition education, meditation and journaling — and of course, exercise — into the public school programming!

This is an exciting project and we need your help!

How can you help?

There are two ways you can make an enormous impact!

1.     Please e-mail Bridget Michener here bmichener@complete-   concierge to volunteer one day at Steppingstones this summer!  You can meet us at Balance at 10:15 am for a ride and we will return back to Balance at 1:15 pm.  It will be a wonderful experience for you and for the kids we work with every day!

2.     Please consider donating to the B Inspired Wellness Project.  B Inspired will pledge $15,000 as seed money for the Wellness Project and we hope to match this gift so that we can provide healthy food options, journals, guest speakers, athletic trainers and coaches and build community gardens in Philadelphia public schools! 

B Inspired is an amazing wellness community and your generosity inspires us everyday!  Thank you for your willingness to give!
