down payment for wellness retreat

$4,223 of $340,000 goal

Raised by 53 people in 34 months
My name is K Kay Moody. I am an Emergency Medicine doc with 5 children. My first carreer was teaching children ballet, tap, jazz and owning a ballet school. I grew up on a farm (also 5 kids). At age 38, I went back to med school with 3 teenage sons. Before med school I dreamed about, and journaled about a WELLNESS CLINIC/ RETREAT.

After med school, I took the standard road of residency training. As a working EM Doc, I find the best way to relieve stress and to BE WELL is to be outside with nature sounds, especially the sound of a babbling brook.

The money that I raise here will be used as a down payment for a Wellness Retreat where I intend to turn the ship on how healthcare is delivered. I hope to open more around the country for all to enjoy, but this will be the first. This first place will provide a place where physicians, who are frustrated with the current state of healthcare, can come together to first heal themselves, then discuss ways to improve healthcare for their local communities.

This means so much to so many because healthcare is in crisis. We need a re-design from the inside out. We are all connected. I am only one person but if I can bring together creative minds in an outdoor environment and have educational conferences (CME) with physicians from around the country, maybe we can join our voices and make a difference and find a way to deliver help our patients to have true WELLNESS.



We will be so thankful for your generous donations as seed money for a place to accomplish our goal of WELLNESS!

We DID it!!! Glacier Rock Wellness Ranch is a real place now!!! Go check out the website! GlacierRockWellness.com and THANK YOU for believing this was possible for our colleagues when it existed only as a vision!!!

We set it up as low cost as possible... just enough to get the down payment and maintain the property ⛺️ Hope to see you all there!! This Go Fund Me $ went toward the down payment.

I picked up the keys March 22. We will have our opening within the month!!! We are already planning our 1st CME event in late summer/early Fall!

UPDATE: still searching for the ideal location and property! On Zillow daily searching for locations with driving distance of airports. Drove to North Carolina this week to look at a 75 acre beautiful lodge on the top of a mountain between Boone and Ashville. Hiked along the 2,220 ft creek with waterfalls!! Loved it!! Will be traveling to near Hot Springs VA this week to look at another! The one is Blue Ridge GA is still in the running. In the mean time, before I actually purchase a property, I will be having a "test run" at a rental property in Pigeon Forge August 16-21. Hopefully many of you will be there!!! Please PM me on FB this week to let me know you will come!!! I will give you details and my phone # on our PM's.
Very excited to find a place where we can be face to face to find ways to promote Physician Wellness! Not just rejuvenation, but truly transforming how we are treated in our hospitals! Together we will improve healthcare for our patients and our communities!! Healthy Doctors=Healthier Patients!!

I am overwhelmed and humbled by your generous outpouring of support!! I started this fund on a vision, went to work a night shift in the ER, came home & slept to prepare for another night shift... And woke up to this!!! I think I will cry!! Thank you!! It is inspiring to know that this important to others as well!! Rx for WELLNESS: feel understood by a group of supportive friends and family, get outside, love a pet, have courage, be kind, exercise, feed your soul, never stop learning, make the world better than you found it
