AL!VE is an experience-based destination health park that provides inspiration and support for the greater Charlotte and mid-Michigan communities to transform, empower and enhance personal well-being.

The Spartan Motors Foundation represents the charitable arm of Spartan and was developed to positively impact the tri-county area surrounding the company's headquarters where the majority of its employees reside. Spartan is the lead donor for AL!VE.
"AL!VE is a state-of-the-art health and wellness center, right here in our backyard," Spartan Motors President and CEO Daryl Adams says. “Ensuring the health and well-being of our employees, their families and our neighbors is vital to not only Spartan's success but to the vitality of the region.
