What Our Partners Are Saying....

"I wanted to personally commend you for a job well done! It takes a special individual to relate to you our young people, especially when it concerns such delicate and important subject matters.  My students took to you from the very first day and have repeatedly expressed how much they learned.  You should pat yourself on the back for your dedication and hard work."
-L. Kepler

The article, titled “Building Partnerships to Build the Best Bones Forever!: Applying the 4Ps to Partnership Development,” reviewed the effective ways we’ve collaborated with our partners and some of the amazing things we’ve been able to accomplish together. The Atlanta Dance Contest and Weekend Jam were among one of our most successful--and fun!--partnership endeavors. Best Bones Forever! has become an award-winning campaign with incredible reach and impact since its fall 2009 launch, and your support has been critical to this success. Partners like AYDRG helped us bring the campaign to girls (and their influencers) where they live, learn, and play, which was a core strategy throughout our work. You have enabled us to interact directly and indirectly with girls, and you’ve brought important bone health messages to girls from credible, familiar voices they trust......We are taking this opportunity to thank you for going above and beyond and for being an active and enthusiastic partner who helped the campaign achieve such great heights.
