Mr. Widlin Dieujuste, the founder of Just Use Some Temporary Energy, Incorporated (JUSTE, Inc.), like many others did not see the need to exercise due to his lean appearance. He pretty much lived a sedentary lifestyle while paying minimal attention to his health. However, 6 months after his college graduation, he started seeing a significant change in his weight due to lack of physical activity and poor eating habits. At that point, on September 9, 2013, he decided it was time for a change. He started his journey by setting small monthly attainable fitness goals. In doing so, he was able to find a new love for running. People started contacting him for ideas on how to become runners themselves. He took on that challenge and started planning small events for these individuals. These events includes: Saturday Morning Runs, Monthly challenges, Mission Trips and an Annual Walk/Run for Haiti 5K. Used these opportunities as ways to fundraise and giveback both locally and globally to communities. Adopted a school in St. Marc, Haiti called Ecole Mixte Carida Denay. Built two additional classrooms to help educate more kids from the community. Held a Back-to-School Drive and provided supplies to over 170+ kids.
