Events and Promotions

Dear Friends,

We are writing on behalf of the A. Roy Heron Global Foundation for Community Wellness to request your presence or a donation for our 1st Annual “Stomp Childhood Obesity” Fundraiser, Saturday, July 29th at 6:00 PM.

As Board Members of this foundation, we are more excited about the cause: Combatting Childhood Obesity. This epidemic is changing the lives of so many kids and preventing them from achieving maximum success. Our 501(c)3 public charity stood up and decided to help kids who otherwise wouldn’t have the resources or assistance in living out thriving and healthy lives.

We are pleased to have launched our first very community initiative in partnership with the Alexandria City Public Schools. The initiative entitled “Fun & Fitness,” is in its pilot stages, where we have enrolled 10 students who have extremely dangerous BMI’s in the 95th percentile or higher.  Those students will complete a robust nutritional and wellness regime that will help them achieve their goal BMI and weight. Childhood obesity leads to critical health, academic and psychological challenges. We invite you to come and help us stand on the front lines and defeat this epidemic. Your support enables us to take this initiative from its pilot stages to the homes of more students around the DMV area.

We are inviting you to come celebrate with us while we STOMP Childhood Obesity.

Wear your favorite Summer Boots!  

We’ll party into the night under a beautifully lit tent, dance to great music, eat amazing food, enjoy a variety of refreshments all on a wonderful Summer Night. So, when the sun sets…..the boots come out and we’ll “step” the night away. This Shindig is guaranteed to give you a good time. You don’t want to miss this event, and it’s all for a good cause!

I hope you would please seriously consider this request and let your neighbors, your friends, and your community know that you are joining us in this fight. If you would like more information about our foundation, and any of the programs it supports, please feel free to contact me or email  You can also check us out on the web at
