The Mission

At Evolution To Wellbeing, we cherish health and freedom of movement. We want every person to have the chance to enjoy mobility and good health, regardless of where they live. That’s why we fund prosthetic limbs for amputees in Bolivia.

In Australia, the average person under the age of 35 lives on $869 per week.

In Bolivia, this number drops to $46 per week. Bolivia is the poorest country in South America. 64% of Bolivians live below the poverty line – that’s nearly 7 million people living in poverty.

Limited social security means that many Bolivians simply don’t possess the resources to access the medical care they need. Our financial support of The Artificial Limbs Centre makes a direct impact on the lives of Bolivian amputees.

 

How it works 

ONE

Every four-week training cycle, we donate funds to our charity project, You Move Me. This money is sent to The Artificial Limbs Centre in La Paz, Bolivia, where it is used to provide prosthetic limbs to Bolivian amputees. Check out the centre.

 

TWO

Donations can only be triggered if our clients follow through on their commitment to attend a nominated number of sessions each week. We call this our You Move Me target. Whether they commit to one session each week or to five, our clients change the world just by showing up.

 

THREE

If you would like to donate funds to the YMM project over and above our triggered donations please follow this link. Donations are made through our project sponsor - Rotary Australia and are tax deductible. One hundred percent of the funds donated go to the charity in Bolivia. All of these funds are used  to support the patients. 

Our Ambassador: Korrin Barrett

Korrin found Evolution To Wellbeing while searching for a fitness community suited to amputees. In 2012, Korrin lost her hands and legs to septicaemia. After a period of intensive surgery and rehabilitation, Korrin’s eagerness to regain her fitness led her to us. She was captivated by You Move Me and the Evolution To Wellbeing philosophy.  

 

As the You Move Me Ambassador, Korrin is inspiring people throughout the world by sharing her story and her passion for a better quality of life for amputees. Get in touch with Korrin via her Facebook page, Life Unlimbited.

If you would like to donate to Korrin personally pls go to her GoFundMe page.
