The Healthy Initiative Foundation’s inaugural annual fundraiser, Celebrate Yourself Healthy, will be held from 7 to 11:30 p.m., March 9, at Germania Place, in Chicago, to promote disease prevention. The VIP reception begins at 6 p.m.

The event will also acknowledge the success of Chicago Healthy Initiative’s 90-Day Breakthrough, those people that joined the program and their personal transformations from participants to community ambassadors that will continue to champion the cause.

Keynote speaker Joel Fuhrman, M.D., is a board-certified family physician, bestselling author and nutritional researcher who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional and natural methods. Chicago area resident Shea Vaughn, the developer of Sheanetics and visionary behind Healthy Initiative, will be a guest speaker.

The Foundation’s goal is to defeat obesity, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers and other lifestyle diseases in children and adults, with transformational ideas and sustainable programs. Ticket sales, sponsorship proceeds and financial contributions will go toward funding wellness programs for the children of Chicago schools.
