A is for Awareness. One of our goals of Buddies In ACTION is to create awareness. We want to bring awareness to the Health and Wellness needs of this special population but we also want to bridge the gap between common misunderstandings amongst the population. For the most part, many of their Health and Wellness needs are the same as yours and mine and they are capable of acheiving the same benefits of a structured physical activity and nutrition program as you and I, sometimes it just takes a little longer to learn.
Another component to creating awareness is creating exposure. Many often tell me the “dont’ know how to act” or “what to say.” The more exposure you have with these special individuals, the more you will quickly realize how comfortable, easy and often refreshing it is to be surrounded by a buddy.
