Operation Fit Nation (OFN) comes from a passion for impact through the celebration of life in those communities that need it most. We believe that as we work on our health, it has a reflex effect on those around us. Our mission is to empower underserved communities to fight for their health. We have seen with our own eyes how small changes in health behaviors have saved lives and transformed the environment around those in close proximity. Imagine if this was intentionally and strategically mimicked across the nation in our most needy communities. We would see more people living longer, more healthier lives.
Health is such an important part of life – whether it be physical, mental, or spiritual. In order to truly tackle our nation’s health issues, it must be addressed in all forms. Ultimately, Operation Fit Nation’s goal is to improve the world through inspiring people to become the best version of themselves by means of better health behavior. We are accomplishing this by conducting wellness interventions that provide resources, tools, opportunities, and relevant knowledge to individuals in at-risk communities, all while hopefully inspiring fun and joy along the way.
As an organization located in Mississippi, we understand that our backyard is ground zero as it relates to our nation’s mortality rate as it relates to obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. That’s why our most of our initial efforts are focused on Mississippi and its most vulnerable communities. We have conducted events in Lafayette, Panola, and Tallahatchie counties and are currently working on extending our impact range across the whole Delta region.
