Q: How was My Genes Fit started?
A: Candice Harris Belfer is a 36 year old entrepreneur who had battled obesity throughout her life and dealt with bulling her entire childhood into early adulthood but made some significant changes to her life to become the success she is today.
Now in an effort to pay it forward she is telling her difficult yet triumphant life story to youth to give hope and inspiration and motivate them to take hold of their lives, make smart choices and cherish themselves and others. The My Genes Fit program is about bullying and also is an awareness campaign and movement tied to Obesity giving it a voice and a color – GOLD.
She shared her vision with two business woman – Susan Belfer and Michele Fischthal who feel passionate about this initiative and collectively have 20+ years of experience driving strategies, marketing communication, and training programs and giving a voice to large and small organizations and together this trio will help make a difference one child at a time. Today we have a program where Candice along with a bully specialist from Prevention First will come to your school with her simple message of perseverance, hard work, love and support can foster change to rid our schools, homes and playgrounds of bullying.
