I have been assisting with CHAMPS for six years and each year it becomes bigger and better than the previous year. CHAMPS provides a great service to the Metro Atlanta community that otherwise is not there. No where else can men come and receive $2,500. worth of free health screenings.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing all of the men and women it helps.

CHAMPS, Inc. was a creative invention and idea that has undoubtedly helped men's health over the years. We touch, on average, 400 men each year by providing education and screening. The community needs it; healthcare needs it; providers need it; the people need it!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Reviewing the longitudinal data and helping with the creation and draft of CHAMPS paper and abstract.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people's lives we touch!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Remarkable and very selfless!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save more lives and heal the world!

That they need more help and they need more money.

More services could be offered at the health fairs if more funding were available.
