Worthwhile Initiatives That Benefit the Community

The Derek Lewis Foundation in Little Rock, AR has a wide range of projects that aim to provide members of the community, especially the youth, with dignity, hope, and happiness. We encourage you to participate in these endeavors so that you can enjoy the magic and fulfillment of helping others. 

Childhood Obesity

We are aware that childhood obesity is an alarming epidemic in the US, especially in Arkansas. Our foundation hosts and supports several anti-obesity programs throughout the year. These programs revolve around educating people on proper nutrition and physical education for school-aged children.

Health and Wellness Expo

The Health and Wellness Expo is the marquee event of our foundation and has been around for a number of years. This event promotes a sense of community and spirited teamwork through partnerships. Also, the Health and Wellness Expo involves health screening, services, and education.

Bikes for Kids

One of our signature programs, Bikes for Kids promotes physical activity among young children. We give out hundreds of bikes and helmets every year to promote this endeavor.

Foster Care

It is our tradition to work closely with the Arkansas Department of Health during the Christmas season. We ensure that several teens in foster care feel the spirit of the holidays by receiving gifts.
