“Anything that we do at Noble, through our foundation has to create an impact.” he says, “Then he started telling me how the program worked,” Capistran shares that he thought it was a great thing for the community.
“I thought it was very intriguing, I said ‘wow we can really help the community in getting healthy by providing some other programs within the fitness court.”
Capistran shares that Noble is always looking for ways to incentivize health and wellness.
