We have about fifteen different organizations out here today. Gateway also has our sports instructor doing an obstacle course for the young children. We have psychologist Deshane Gutierrez out here and that is the mental aspect of it, We have counselors from the community rehabilitation center which is also the mental aspect of it. There is the Belize Diabetes Association so that is the physical part and we also had yoga instructor out here, I guess that could be considered mental, physical and spiritual healthy practicing.
