Since 2014 the Kazman Foundation for Charitable Giving has raised $500,000 in donations for the following charities:
Active Living for Life Program
The Active Living for Life program focuses on building healthy lifestyles for people who have chronic kidney disease and are looking to improve their personal fitness levels. The program allows people to become more active and have more energy to do the things they love! Kidney-friendly exercise classes are offered, combined with discussions, ideas, and daily activities to help make healthy choices.
The program consists of two one-hour classes per week. The first week provides an introduction to the program including meeting fellow classmates and instructors, individual evaluations, and an introduction to the exercise programs. The program focuses on different aspects of fitness targeting stability, injury prevention, posture, muscular strength, and flexibility. The cardio component is individual; however, support is provided to you throughout the program to assist with increasing your cardio activity using a pedometer.
The mission of the program is to:
• Provide you with various tools to help lead an active lifestyle in a safe and comfortable environment
• Provide support to help you overcome barriers that have stopped you from enjoying physical activity
• Help you find ways of becoming more active in your community
