East Carolina University students are reaching out to youth and senior adults through a new student organization called MUVE (Motivating and Uplifting via Exercise).
LaBarron Burwell, a health fitness specialist major in the College of Health and Human Performance, and psychology major Joshua Epps co-founded MUVE in October. The friends were seeking a way to help others through exercise instruction, mentorship and leadership activities.
