THE MOMENT I DECIDED TO GIVE

“We chose the location of our home, in part, because of its proximity to a facility like Vivo. It is an important part of our lives as it is a space for fitness activities, special events and celebrations. The facility greatly contributes to our sense of community and it has had a tremendously positive impact on our lives. Our family values include a commitment to giving back to the community in which we live and each year, we choose an organization we view as worthy of our largest charitable contribution. We are inspired by the energy and pure joy of the staff, volunteers and families at Vivo and have chosen to donate to them for the next several years. Donating to Vivo has benefits for our entire community and we can’t thank of a better reason to give.” – Vivo Donor
