Check out our 2017 Annual F.I.G.H.T. Women’s Health & Wealth Conference!


Wow!  What an amazing women’s conference we just had at The Well on Saturday, May 13th.


This beautiful location was the backdrop of an event that changed many, many lives.

Our phenomenal MC was none other than Akron City Councilwoman At Large, Veronica Sims.



Council Woman Sims led a line up of powerful speakers as they discussed women’s empowerment, health issues, wellness treatments, and of course financial independence for women. Through stories of their personal tragedies, successes, and life lessons learned they taught those attending how to Find Inside themselves Greatness, Hope, and Tenacity.

We gave out four awards to inspiring women in our community.
