“Joy’s smile is much closer to tears than laughter.” ~ Victor Hugo
What an honor it was for Joy Radio to speak to Louis Yuhasz, founder of Louie’s Kids. Bearing witness to his father’s day-to-day struggles with his weight of 550 lbs, quickly motivated Louis to not only embrace a healthy lifestyle, but to advocate for early education to combat childhood obesity. Six months following his father’s debilitating stroke and later immobility due to his obesity, Louis founded Louie’s Kids– his very personal crusade to educate as many of the 25 million children suffering from childhood obesity as possible.
This is one interview you won’t want to miss as Louis talks passionately about Runbuddies, and provides a moving success story about one of Louie’s Kids. He also speaks about the upcoming 8th Annual Yoga Marathon in Marion Park, Charleston, SC on October 29, noon-3:00 pm to benefit Louie’s Kids, and much more.
Louis Yuhasz is moving mountains, and making a difference… one child at a time!

Joy Radio was honored to interview Nate and Sherry Smalls, founders of Smalls Institute for Music and Youth Leadership on Saturday, October 15,2011. Their mission: To increase awareness for the arts by providing music instruction for piano, bass guitar, and percussion, as well as outreach programs and services to promote youth leadership.
Both Nate and Sherry have a background in music and their passion is to share ‘their passion’ of music with children, especially the less advantaged. For the past five years they have been teaching music in their home after school. With the purchase of their new bus they are hoping to take their musical talents on the road and offer them to the less fortunate in the rural areas of Charleston. Their 5 year and 10 year vision may revolutionize the after-school music and youth leadership programs for schools.
They are in need of instruments, donated food for the children’s snacks after school and other items. Be sure and check out their upcoming fundraisers.
Wishing the Smalls much success on their journey.
