Our Philosophy

Kalamazoo may not be special – not in the sense that it’s all that much different from Kokomo, or Kankakee, or Keokuk, or Walla Walla, but . . .

It’s special to those of us who understand its incredible potential . . .

It’s special because there’s always room for new people to feel welcome . . .

for new ideas to flourish . . .

for new hope to be born. And nurtured.

There’s new hope for a community whose citizens value good health – for themselves, their friends, their neighbors, their co-workers, their children.

Our philosophy is simple. We make people feel welcome to move – stretch, walk, run, play – just move. We provide them with good information, but not answers. We support them.

We risk new challenges, but also new possibilities.

We explore that potential that is in Kalamazoo, and in ourselves.

We learn as we lead.
