The It’s Your Life Foundation (IYLF) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to serve and educate our community locally and globally to make better life choices. The program has been funded in partnership with local businesses, local, regional and national foundations, and physicians.
We appreciate all the support from the Coastal Bend community and Corpus Christi school districts, because of you we have reached more than 10,000 kids in our community in the year of 2015-2016. Through our iConquer program questionnaire results, children have demonstrated a percentage increase in their knowledge of diabetes and obesity prevention. Children are being equipped for the future!
