Roselie Brenner was a passionate practitioner and teacher of Tai Chi Chuan. On a very personal level, she felt Tai Chi had a profound and positive influence on her life. As a result, she wanted others to enjoy Tai Chi and experience its many benefits, and in her memory the Roselie Brenner Tai Chi Fund at EAC Network was founded.
"The fund's committee, made up of dedicated volunteers who were touched by Roselie's spirit, has been committed to continuing her work through the promotion of Tai Chi," noted Angie Malone, Division Director of Health Services at EAC Network. "We know that Tai Chi benefits the mind, body and spirit. Our awardees have excellent programs planned, and we look forward to watching their progression and learning of their impact on their communities."
