CTHF’s mission statement is “to improve the quality of life for backstretch workers.”  Inherent in the words is to improve their lives OVERALL!

We continue our proactive platform of “Racing to Wellness.”  It must be noted, however, that “wellness” cannot just be measured in terms of one’s medical or dental health.  It also must be measured in terms of physical, nutritional, spiritual, social, cultural, educational, recreational and social health.

Towards that end we are promoting alliances with like-organizations who service the backstretch workers, along with programs and activities that, hopefully, bring both balance and joy to their lives, and the lives of their family members.

We are also educating Type 2 diabetics on the importance both nutrition and exercise. financially supporting the chaplaincy programs at California racetracks and offering social, cultural and recreational activities both at the track and at local venues.

It is hoped that these programs will bring a better overall balance to the lives of these dedicated and loyal backstretch workers.

Our entire CTHF staff at all three of our clinic locations look forward to coming to work each and every day in the joyous prospect of helping others less fortunate than ourselves.  How lucky we are!
