CWUW is a wonderful and positive organization for the community. The ladies are intent on healing and helping to grow the Urban Woman via physical & mental health, which is very important in this day and age. From community walks to gardening to Life Jam, CWUW deserves to be recognized, celebrated and supported!!!! Their mission is LIFE, and there couldn't possibly be a better mission to have!

CWUW is an amazing organization, that is badly needed in our community. Helping women with their total health by embracing the 7 Dimensions of Wellness is a wonderful way of reaching, teaching and impacting. In the short time CWUW has been in existence, countless women have already been touched by the organization. This organization will continue to grow, and I forsee it becoming a critical component of the health community here in Indianapolis.

I worked the LifeFit Health Kids Expo at the CWUW booth. It was a great experience teaching children about health and wellness. CWUW had each child complete a "health pledge" before receiving a gift from the table. They also had to give an example of how they will make the world a better place. CWUW's director even got up and did Zumba with the kids. Its a great organization!

CWUW since its inception has been on the move to create relationships and alliances with community organizations that have the same passion for empowering women and their families to be proactive about their health. From clothing drives, to health fairs, workshops and "sister walks", we embrace health and all that it has to offer. I have learned what a great resource we can be to people in need, that collaboration is necessary for change, and that our labor is NOT IN VAIN! We will keep pressing to make our mark in the community and in the lives of those in need.

When I first starting walking in the Sisters Together Program, I thought I would have a hard time getting up on Saturday mornings to walk for an hour. Who wants to get up early on a Saturday after having had to get up early during the week for work. So, I got up anyway and started walking. I enjoy talking, sharing and connecting with women while I walk. I enjoy walking with this group of women. This is a good program. Sometimes its hard to do things like exercise by yourself, but with these other woman, I have been trying to make life long changes to my physical and emotional health.

Fabulous experience all around. It was a wonderful opportunity to serve (and be served) but more important to be around like-minded positive women is a joy.
