Healthy Life Global Shoestring Initiative encourages students to Lace'em Up and Be ACTIVE. Students within the Mid-South have a long history of inactivity. The lack of physical activity has caused various health issues within our communities. The pandemic exposed even more health issues that our student must mentally and physically.
As HLG expanded, we realized that our efforts to encourage students to Lace'em Up and Be ACTIVE in the United States overlooked the reality that some students didn't have tennis shoes to Lace Up to be ACTIVE IN. HLG started a SHOE DRIVE to help serve our partnering community in Ghana Africa.
