The Jazz and More Fundraiser

Jazz and More Fundraiser raises funds to support the Brains and Body Summer Fitness Camp which is held at Woodward High School and runs for five weeks beginning in June 2020.  The Brains and Body Camp provides educational classes such as Sign Language, Math, Science, Chess, Nutrition of Life and much more.  The physical component is taught by Toledo Police Officers, which includes basketball, dodge ball, soccer and more.  

The Brains and Body Summer Fitness Program has become an all-encompassing program for both educational and physical fitness for a wider range of students. Retired Officers Floella Wormely and Anita Madison are the faces of the program.

They have plenty of help, however. The Toledo Police Department assists with in-kind funding by proving police officers, such as Officer Derek Kizer, as mentors, particularly for the fitness part of the program. Toledo Public Schools provides the building (the program has been housed at Woodward High School after its initial two years at Robinson Elementary) and the transportation. Brains and Body uses certified TPS teachers for the educational program activities.

Wormely and Madison also raise funds from a variety of private and public sources in order to continue their efforts which is how the Jazz and More Fundraiser comes into play.

If you are a parent, young adult or person who has benefited or from STRIVE or believes in this organization please support.  Tickets can be purchased from the Toledo Police Museum 2201 Kenwood Blvd (419-720-2485) – on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or by calling Flo Wormely 419-322-8425.
