We promote health through a variety of tennis and wellness activities, events and initiatives.
Our mission is simple: to promote health. We believe that good health is vital for everyone and fundamental to a happy and productive life. Therefore we provide many opportunities for members of our diverse community to engage in their own health.

I founded G Alex Foundation in 2009 because I believe that health matters. Having health enables us to live fully, be availabe to loved ones and open our hearts to those less fortunate. While health is relative and varies from person to person, optimal health is achievable for all. It's the optimization of health that connects us with our potential. to be the best humans we can.
My life's work is all about health. In Social Work, Massage Therapy, as a USANA Associate, and through G. Alex Foundation, I strive to facilitate optimal health in others. Thus G. Alex Foundation promotes health and offers our community opportunities to be healthier.
I first became a volunteer for the G. Alex Foundation based on my friendship with the Director, Glen Alex and my love and passion for Tennis. As the foundation has matured and evolved, it has extended out beyond tennis and is focused on overall wellness and helping others. Giving time to help others, and donating funds through events and supporters to help others in need is a true passion. Too many people on this planet need support, help, love, nourishing and care and need a helping hand. I am looking forward to bigger events and growing the supporter base of the foundation along with the Director and the Board members.

One good reason why volunteering is important to me is that it goes a long way towards creating a healthy community. I volunteer for G. Alex Foundation because tennis provides for healthy activities to improve fitness, self-esteem, teamwork and other positive wellness programs. Additionally, I work with a fun group of people with the same beliefs that I have.
I am an Allstate Agency Owner for 9 years in Las Vegas. I volunteer for the G. Alex Foundation to be able to give back to the community. As a father, husband, and business owner, I believe health is important in this balancing act. And I want to share my experiences to help educate everyone in the community on good health habits.
