Our company has a long history of investing in Louisiana’s health and fitness. Each year, we sponsor dozens of healthy living events – family fit days, races and walks, cooking demos and farmer’s markets – to keep people eating right and moving more.

We also support hundreds of nonprofits providing access to care and support services across the state. In 2019, we invested $1.1 million of sponsorships and project funding in 228 community partners with a focus on bigger, sustainable impact, including:
