Dreamstarter Grant Program

Rashaun Nez

in Lower Fruitland, NM (Navajo)

Rashaun's dream is to help Navajo people of all ages improve their strength and wellbeing by teaching them fitness techniques during 6-week weightlifting, cardio-intense classes. 

He will teach eight of these classes in different areas of the Navajo reservation and provide the support of a personal trainer to keep participants on track. Many people in Rashaun's community don't have access to a gym or fitness classes, so teaching people ways to stay physically fit will have an impact even after the classes are over, and help foster a healthier Navajo Nation.
