In 1993, Charles E. Ragus founded AdvoCare, a health and wellness company, with the commitment to be an advocate who cared. Today, AdvoCare has taken that commitment to the next level by establishing the AdvoCare Foundation. The foundation focuses on the life-destroying epidemic of childhood obesity in an effort to help fulfill its larger mission – to help all children be happy, healthy, and safe.
The AdvoCare Foundation is attacking obesity by supporting organizations across the country whose work directly impacts the safety and health of children in need. With the help and generosity of the AdvoCare Foundation founders, our supporters and our communities, we've been able to make a huge impact in only a few years, and this is only the beginning. Our initial goal is to grant $1 million dollars by 2020 to support long-term solution to help the next generation survive and thrive.
