Building a Stronger Austin, Together.
Eliminating barriers to health and wellness. Empowering parents to be healthy role models for their kids. Ensuring everyone in our community has access to the healthy activities, foods, and services they need to thrive. These are goals we can all get behind. Your support of Stronger Austin helps make them a reality.
In 2018, Stronger Austin launched with a goal of improving access to health and wellness services in Austin’s most underserved neighborhoods. Recognizing that health is the foundation of a thriving community, we focus on removing barriers to participation such as inability to pay, lack of transportation, or lack of awareness of existing services.
Our services include free after school programs for kids, free fitness classes for adults, free nutrition education for families, and increased access to community-based health and wellness services for all.
In the words of one of our program participants, Sam, Stronger Austin "has allowed people in the community that can’t get to a gym whether its’ because of transportation... or financial means, an opportunity to come in and do something for themselves."
AmplifyATX, the biggest charitable giving day in central Texas, is March 5-6, 2020. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to bring this program to 1,000 more people in the Austin community. You can make a difference.
Every dollar you give between now and March 6 will provide community members with a year of access to the kinds of fitness activities, healthy food options, and health-related services we all need to thrive.
Just over a year ago, Stronger Austin launched with a goal of improving access to health and wellness services in Austin’s most underserved neighborhoods. Our programs focus on providing free exercise and nutrition classes, healthy food options, healthcare services, and out-of-school care, all walkable within the areas where residents live.
In the words of one of our program participants, Sam, Stronger Austin “has allowed people in the community that can’t get to a gym whether its’ because of transportation… or financial means, an opportunity to be able to come in and do something for themselves.”
Amplify Austin, the biggest charitable giving day in central Texas, is February 28. Our goal is to raise $7,500 to bring this program to 750 more people in our area. Your support in any amount can make a difference.
Because you believe in our vision of building a healthier, more equitable community, please give today. Every dollar we raise together between now and February 28 will provide community members with access to the kinds of fitness activities, healthy food options, and health-related services we all need to thrive.
