A relentless force for longer, healthier lives in our community.
Relentless is defined as being incessant, perfectly explaining our commitment to change the lives of everyone living in Southwest Florida. Across both Lee and Collier counties, we’re fighting for longer lives with a quality of life that you can enjoy. We’re working to make the places where we live, learn, work, play, pray, and heal to be equal and accessible.
With a special focus on improving blood pressure and healthy lifestyles through healthy eating in southwest Florida, our programs improve the health of this community. Our Board of Directors, local volunteers, and team are addressing the changes needed to reach our goals of ensuring longer, healthier lives with a relentless determination.
In Lee and Collier counties, 26.2% of adults are living with high blood pressure which can lead to a heart attack or stroke.
Give and get matched to help end heart disease and stroke.
Make a donation to the American Heart Association this May and it’ll be MATCHED, up to $500,000, to help fund innovative research, advocacy, and education efforts.
Commit to a healthy future, and together let's build the health of Southwest Florida.
A Culture of Health & Wellness
Everyone deserves the best possible life, and it starts right here in our community.
“We've enjoyed participating in the Healthy for Good Program. It is gratifying to watch clients adopt healthy lifestyle measures which have been proven to prevent and reverse chronic disease. For so many people, education on simple changes can have a tremendous impact on their long-term health and longevity.”
Dr. Brian Taschner, Vibrant Beat

Blood pressure monitoring during a pandemic
Do you know your numbers? More than 25% of our residents live with high blood pressure that requires regular checks. Take-home blood pressure cuffs make it possible to track the numbers without leaving the house. We’ve handed out a hundred blood pressure cuffs to people in our community since the pandemic began. And we’ll keep handing out more. Let’s manage the pressure together, SWFL!
