The Wil-Power Foundation was formed in 2016 after the passing of William Mintner, a beloved son and brother. William’s death was a tragic event that took place while he was a freshman in college and changed the lives of many who knew him.
William’s death was alcohol related and completely preventable. There are instances in life where a person feels left out, not good enough, fear, rejection, and the incredible need to fit in.
Wil-Power Foundation understands these facts, all too well and we want to make a difference. We firmly believe that education, exercise and positive experiences, can encourage a person’s individuality. Confidence…Self Esteem…Friendship…Mental and Physical Differences… can all de developed, accepted and appreciated through empowerment.
This is the reason we have embarked on a mission to have encounters with people both young and not so young in the physical realm. Both our Wellness, Rehab and Physical Performance Programs are designed to create scenarios where everyone can participate and belong. You might also get really fit!
The Wil-Power Foundation exists to inspire and equip people of all ages through physical, social, and cognitive means in order to assist them in achievement of their highest potential in sport and in life.
We envision promoting healthy communities through education, revitalization, wellness and character building.
