When asked about the new partnerships, Well-Play Founder, Denise Williams said,
“I am proud to have T.H.E. Clinic, Veg-It-Up and KJLH on board. Each has demonstrated an unparalleled dedication to health and wellness in the community, focusing their efforts on children and their families in communities that often fly under the radar, but are disproportionately impacted by obesity and diabetes prevention and management. In addition, they continue to lend their voices to educating families on the importance of healthy living -making this alliance a true asset to the Keep Move’N program.”
