He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother!
Helping Others Lightens the Load for Everyone!

Ten brave volunteers are needed to gain five pounds in three weeks! No, you won't be eating chocolate cake all day, but you can share the load of a neighbor who is legally blind and needs a little bit of help with the day to day tasks we take for granted. If you can carry the weight, this is your chance to gain 5 pounds and still feel great! All it takes is three short weeks from application to connection and you too can pack on the pounds in a truly heart-healthy way!
