5K Benefactor

The 2018 Marathon Madness 5K supports Health Possible Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Corporation based in Wilmington, North Carolina. As a preventative healthcare foundation, our main HealthPossibleInc Logo Smallobjective is to provide gap-filling financial aid for employed United States citizens to receive physical fitness coaching and individualized health and fitness education. This financial aid is developed by the monetary values raised and then distributed directly to qualifying facilities and qualifying health and fitness professionals so that they may coach these clients through the appropriate programs. Once a client is qualified and paired with a professional and a facility, their journey to create another life lived independently has begun.

Our mission is to advance the American culture of physical activity and personal independence. As Health Possible aims to eliminate obesity and prevent further disease and ailment by self neglect, we look to our community to help impact the statistics and the trends [by movement]. By implementing programs that amplify physical activity, self-education, nutrition and dietitian guidance, HPI is recreating the generations to come and the way they treat themselves as healthy U.S. citizens. Health Possible Inc. believes that the happiest, most independent and motivated cultures live actively and well; they move. Health Possible Inc. encourages its communities to not only spread the word or be a part of the movement, but also help one person in your own community, directly, move a little bit better and a little bit more than they might have before. What laughter is to the soul, movement is to the mind.
