Just Move Charitable Health Trust facilitate the funding requirements for BBM Motivation health, fitness and well-being programs. Our vision is to break the intergenerational cycle of obesity among Maori and Pasifika and those predominately living in low socio-economic communities in New Zealand through education and helping their families to choose to live a health-focused lifestyle.

BBM Motivation is a holistic change model incorporating the principles of physical, mental, spiritual and family activities that address health and wellbeing in a pragmatic way that is positive and encouraging in a safe and non- judgmental environment.

BBM Motivation is led by the founder, Dave Letele, who is supported by an Advisory Board of two senior professional managers. There are also 24 leaders that lead the boot camps each week. All the leaders have undergone the BBM program and many themselves who have overcome obesity. All are now living a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle that now mentor other families attending the boot camps.

We have a special focus on obese people that have given up on life because of their circumstances; many suffering diabetes and other physical illnesses along with mental health-related conditions.

BBM Motivation runs several health and wellbeing programs to low decile communities across the Auckland region. Prior to COVID19 Lockdown, 2000 participants were engaged and attending our health programs per week. The majority are adults along with children and grandchildren. Maori and Pasifika are the main nationalities with 70% women and 30% men currently engaged. We have an active online community of 13,765 people.

Update from Dave Letele - Founder of BBM Motivation (Just Move Charitable Health Trust)

I got this message from one of the families we helped today. It pretty much summed up the feeling we are getting from serving our people.

"Your love and hard work for our community is beyond my imagination. Drove away real quick because I couldn't hold back the tears. #grateful

There's a Samoan saying that goes like this - e lē lava ni upu ia te au, e leai foi ni auro po'o ni ario o ia te a'u e taui ai lou alofa ma lou agalelei ae ia faapena ona liligi mai faamanuiaga a le Atua ia te oe ma toe faatutumu mea ua gaogaoina ona o i matou nei"

"Which translates to - there are not enough words to say, nor do I have diamonds or rubies to repay the great love and kindness you've shown to me and my family BUT we pray that God pours his blessings upon you and fulfil everything that shared today"🙏🏽🙏🏽❤️❤️

I want to take this time to thank all of our supporters.

Thank you to these amazing organisations and supporters: Auckland Meat processors, Wilson Hellabys, Sanford and Sons, The Mad Butcher, Seeka, Fair Food, Punch bowl packaging, HeadQuarters Viaduct , Italian Stone Ltd , NZ Sikh Games and The Breakfast Club.😀😀

We plan on operating and supporting our communities right throughout Winter. Unfortunately, it's only going to get tougher for our people. We greatly appreciate your support and everyone who has generously donated to this appeal. This will enable us to continue this work supporting families.
