$184,497 for Maryhaven

I can speak for all of us at Maryhaven: we are eternally thankful to the Next Level Trainings team for their enthusiasm, passion, and tenacity during the past few weeks. Their fundraising efforts and dedication to improve the facility at Maryhaven's adolescent center was breathtaking. This project will have a lasting impact on the teens in this community and their legacy will last for years to come.

$106,000 for Kaleidoscope Youth Center

We weren’t aware of this program. They just said: ‘We want to support you — and get rid of any limited thinking. Open your mind and your vision; what’s the most wonderful thing that could happen to this organization?’ Less than two months later I was shaking my head in happy disbelief over the results. Such a bounty doesn’t typically rain down on nonprofit agencies such as Kaleidoscope. In fact, their efforts doubled the previous largest contribution.

$104,866 for Face To Face Germantown

It’s not often I am at a loss for words, but I have to say over these past couple of weeks with every dollar raised; I had the face of a client come into my head. To say that we are humbled and grateful for what Next Level Trainings has done is an understatement. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

$136,206 for LifeTown Columbus

“We were stunned when the Next Level Trainings leadership class told us we had been selected. The energy and love they are bringing with this is the answer to our prayers. We are in awe of what the Next Level Trainings' leadership class was able to achieve with such a short period of time.

$41,000 for Veterans Resource Center

I fully expected the Military Veterans Resource Center might receive $1,000 or $2,000 from the service project, and I would have been happy with that. Then I saw the oversized check for more than $30,000 – I was really a state of awe. This will really help us build capacity here.

I lost 80 lbs. by shifting my mindset.

I lost 80 lbs. by shifting my mindset.

I thought losing weight would be simple: eat right, exercise and the rest would happen right? What I didn't realize is how my mindset was impacting my ability to lose weight. I was going through the motions but with a mindset that was already defeated and settling for giving up easily. I'd lose a two pounds and gain five, then my mind would flip to "okay it's hopeless." After going through my Next Level journey I realized I was using my negative self-talk was a form of sabotage. 

Next Level supported me in seeing that for myself and with the support of the community I was able to shift "I can't" to "I am." On my journey I have released 80 lbs. of body fat, moved out of being pre-diabetic, and participated in several 5ks and the Cap City Half Marathon. I changed my relationship to running and enjoy the ability to go out and run around our beautiful city. I have also explored the many opportunities to stay active through weight lifting, rock climbing, swimming, and finding the fun and joy in physical activity. I am proud to say I am in the best shape of my life at 36 years old!
