The Crim Fitness Foundation is proud to help launch Flint as one of three cities in the nation invited to participate in the Mindful Cities Initiative, a project with The Foundation for a Mindful Society. As a Mindful City, it is imperative that we connect around this topic of ACES and create a universal understanding of how we can come together to create a more mindful and resilient Flint.

The Crim Fitness Foundation aims to be a catalyst for authentic change – we do this through our community and educational work around physical activity, nutrition, active communities, and mindfulness. We proudly collaborate with many organizations in Flint, including the Flint RECAST Initiative and the Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation efforts, to help make effective change. Please join us at the table as we, along with others in the community, bring the topic of ACES into mindful awareness.

As a next step on our journey to support a more Mindful and Resilient Flint, the Crim will be hosting Community Lunch and Learns for those currently supporting or interested in learning more. The lunch and learn will be hosted at the Crim Fitness Foundation and led by ACE Master Trainer and Crim Mindfulness Resiliency Lead Elizabeth Wise. The presentation will cover the science behind toxic stress, the ACES study, resiliency, and some practical steps everyone can take to support healthy individual and community resiliency. Additionally, there will be an opportunity to view the documentary Resilience at a later date.

Each event has capacity to include 15 participants and the Crim will provide a light lunch*. We hope to see you at the table. Please reach out to Elizabeth Wise if you have any question

* If you are interested in a large group (more than 5) from your organization being part of this presentation, please contact Elizabeth Wise for more information.
