Get Up Get Moving- Initiative
An initiative funded by the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, “Vive Tu Vida! Get Up! Get Moving!” provides community-based initiatives and activities designed to promote health and wellness among individuals.
With the help of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, the primary goal of the program is to address physical and mental health by utilizing local resources in the community such as cultural centers, parks and local soccer/sports teams to emphasize the importance of physical activity, supporting the family and community building.
The Get Up Get Moving initiative holds an annual community health fair at Daniel Fernandez Park in Los Lunas. The fair features local vendors and health organizations and provides free blood sugar, blood pressure screenings, and COVID testing.
children, youth, and adults were helped by YDI last year

Community-based members provide services to more than 15 million Hispanics throughout the U.S. every year and national organization members provide services to more than 100 million people annually.
