Located in Houston, Texas, Bel Inizio helps disadvantaged women develop self-confidence and life skills through fitness and nutrition. Participants train to complete a 5K, which helps prepare them for the ultimate race — the race for a better life.
Houston has a generous giving community and great compassion for those in need. We have emergency shelters, transitional housing, and half-way houses. The agencies offer case workers, recovery programs, and job skills training. What gets lost, and is critically needed, is helping individuals achieve the self esteem and confidence that can come from an ongoing exercise and nutrition program.
This spring Bel Inizio is helping women at Santa Maria Hostel, Brigid's Hope, and our new partner, the Women's Home. We will be helping 30-50 women build a stronger tomorrow through fitness, nutrition, goal setting, and accomplishment. We teach our teams to harness the power of racing to build their confidence and their future. My goal of $2,000 will help each of our women line up boldly for the start of their race, which we all know is the very hardest part. Thank you.
