The Go Luke Wygand Foundation is a nonprofit organization focused in helping people overcome life challenges. Just like Gandhi once said, be the change you wish to see in the world.
We have two missions:
1- Provide you with tools (mind, body and soul) so you can be the change. A better world is achieved when we change ourselves by achieving Inner Balance.
2- Create awareness for Nemaline Myopathy a rare muscle condition (Luke’s condition).
The name “The Go Luke Wygand” was inspired by Luke Wygand that was born with Nemaline Myopathy. Since birth Luke brought so much light, love and inspiration from people all around him, during his 120 days in the hospital the #GoLukeWygand was created. Luke’s father Richard Wygand, before his birth wanted to do something meaningful to leave a better world for his son. Luke’s Mom and Dad were triathletes with over 20 years of racing combine. The irony of two triathletes having a son with an unexpected muscular condition, gave RW the inspiration he needed to create The Go Luke Wygand Foundation. Richard for many years was all about Mind and Body where he lost 100 pounds, overcame many challenges to become a pro athlete and finish 18 ironmans (one of the hardest endurance race in the Planet). Luke brought in the Soul part with many lessons in a such period of time, and those lessons do not stop. Now Richard is embracing a 200 mile SUP from Lake Worth to Key West to raise awareness for Nemaline Myopathy.
