Big Game 5K “One Run Many Lives Touched” at GSP in Paramus

On January 26, 2014, the Big Game 5K was held at the Garden State Plaza in Paramus New Jersey to arouse interest in the Super Bowl and to help support and raise funds for different charities in the area. Some of the charities included Hero’s and Cool Kids, Boys and Girls Club, Children’s Aid and Family Services, the National Multiple Sclerosis and others.

The International WeLoveU Foundation showed it supports not only for the charities but to the runners who made effort to participate. The cheerers stood at both sides of the finish line to lead the runners home with cheers and encouraging chants. The volunteers developed lasting relationships with the charities and continued to help the community through the effort.

On October 22, 2012, the International WeLoveU Foundation cheered on the participants in the Avon Breast Cancer walk, with the goal of sharing love and bringing smiles to those affected by the illness. Sharing laughter and love to those affected by cancer directly and indirectly has the power to unite communities and give hope.

There are more than 100 types of cancer and any part of the body can be affected. In 2008 alone, 7.6 million people died of cancer accounting for more than 13.6% of all deaths worldwide. Today, breast cancer is one of the most serious forms of cancer affecting women and causing the largest number of deaths.

International WeLoveU Foundation volunteers put together more than 300, 50 lbs boxes of canned goods and personally delivered them to the homes of seniors living in poverty.

On September 13, 2012, International WeLoveU Foundation volunteers put together more than 300, 50 lbs boxes of canned goods and personally delivered them to the homes of seniors living in poverty. Many of the seniors lived alone and suffered from depression. This kickoff event in Liberty State Park was to inform the local community of WeLoveU’s work and to get others involved.

More than 1.7 million New Yorkers live in poverty, struggling to afford basic necessities and suffering from hunger and malnutrition. As the recession has affected the global economy, New Yorkers have been hit hard, but City Harvest helps to put food on the table for more than 2 million New Yorkers every year.

CareOne Senior Home Visit

WeLoveU volunteers share love and encouragement with CareOne seniors.

On April 29, 2012, WeLoveU Foundation volunteers shared special performances and games with the seniors of Care One. For more than 2 hours, opera singers, musicians and dancers entertained the seniors and delivered personal and group performances to encourage the seniors.

Close and constant companionship has been linked to helping stage off symptoms of depression in individuals over 65 years of age. Seniors are often overlooked as an important population of individuals. Their long-life struggles and hard work have enabled today’s middle aged baby boomers to get where they are. It is critical that the youth learn to respect and appreciate the efforts of seniors and share love and encouragement with them.
