Our Story

In 2018, HealthJox founder - Dewry DuRoi Bradford began the journey of producing health & sports festivals in Brooklyn, NY called "HealthJox Festival".  To increase the positive impact that the event had on the Community, the decision was made to establish a 501c3 nonprofit called "HealthJox Foundation, Inc." in July 2020.  To tap into the creative interest of Youth in NYC, HealthJox Foundation launched "CraftPalooza" in 2022 which will become "CraftPalooza Festival" in 2023.  To address the growing issue of crime within the inner city, HealthJox is launching the "Pursuing Purpose Program" in 2023 which is a 3-part program focusing on an alternative to prison for at-risk Youth; 12-week program for Orphans; Fashion/Arts program for all NYC Youth.  Finally, to create the HealthJox facility, Dewry DuRoi wanted to build a structure that addresses the very issue of healthy environment.  HealthJox LLC is now on a mission to build what will be the "HealthJox Vertical Forest".  Our goal is to create a fully vertical facility where attendees and residents can enjoy a complete health experience while taking part in improving their mind, body and environment.  Our mission is to transform New York City into the vertical forest Metropolis of America.
