Founded in 2017, ViVe Wellness addresses the health equity, physical wellness, and mental wellness needs of communities in Denver, Colorado that face significant health disparities and lack access to physical activity and health education.
Through partnerships with local organizations and donations secured through grants and private funding, ViVe Wellness promotes physical health, mental health, leadership, and social well-being to children and adults across Denver. ViVe's strategy is to create health equity by offering these programs in communities of need, in collaboration with local schools, families and organizations.
