What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The household out-of-pocket health cost of obesity is almost $1400/year, including co-pays and prescription drugs. Smoking adds an additional $1000/year to health costs! This can put the costs of a healthy lifestyle – gym memberships, healthier foods – out of reach. People are often forced to make the choice of getting healthy or not – a choice they literally CANNOT afford not to make. 1DOS Foundation is dedicated to filling this financial gap for people who want to get healthy but simply cannot afford it. We do this by providing Fitness Scholarships, which allow less-fortunate community members facing health and wellness issues (some life-threatening) to receive benefits like gym memberships, fresh produce delivered in-home, and other possible benefits.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To help as many candidates as possible reach their health and wellness goals, and change their lives. Both of our founders have been able to change their daily existence removing all blood pressure medications, statins, etc. They did this not through some magic pill or trick, but through hard work, diet and exercise.

By finding and helping candidates with Fitness Scholarships, whether full or partial, we enable them to focus on the "getting healthy" part of their journey. Removing financial barriers can allow them to change their outlook, and in fact change their lives. The scholarships cover gym fees, possible clothing stipends, race fees (to help them set and achieve goals), healthy food and produce options.

Currently we have one recipient and are looking to add a second. As our outreach grows, we will add more coverage by relying on partner organizations (like the gyms and trainers we work with) as well as our existing, proven support network.

Our current recipient, Deana Novak in Albany, NY, was faced with the prospect of not surviving to see her 8 year-old daughter’s high school graduation if she didn’t improve her health. With four children under 10 and her husband recently laid off, she was not sure where to turn.
Now, thanks to the Foundation, she is attending gym classes 4 days a week at 4:30 am, down 12 pounds and 14 inches in 6 weeks. Every two weeks she receives a box of produce, canning what she can’t use immediately. Her outlook has changed, and she completed her first 5K on June 1.
We are preparing to launch a recipient in Olathe, KS (our other main location), with continued growth from there in the near future!
