National CanDo Day – January 4, 2023

National CanDo Day is celebrated on January 4 every year. This is a day to take a realistic account of what a person is able to accomplish through hard work and dedication. National CanDo Day emphasizes achieving all the possible goals and doable tasks in one’s life. It encourages us to do things we are capable of doing and that we always dreamt of. It motivates us to concentrate on our strengths and turn our dreams into a reality, through determination and willpower. National CanDo is the brainchild of Adam Bremen, whose tryst with the Keto lifestyle transformed his life.

History of National CanDo Day

National CanDo Day, an annual event celebrated on January 4, was founded by Adam Bremen, who suffers from cerebral palsy. He has been wheelchair-bound for most of his life, and had to expend a considerable effort to remain active. It was during his pursuit of a healthy way of life, that he stumbled upon the Keto lifestyle in 2017.

Breman followed the Keto diet and realized that he had gained enough energy to start water aerobics, which helped him lose around 65 lbs. He developed a good liking for Keto and decided to make others aware of its benefits. In 2017, he founded Keto Krisp, a snack bar that combined healthy Keto foods with taste. His venture, Keto Krisp, makes delectable and clean Keto diet-friendly snacks for people who want well-balanced protein-rich foods.

This innate confidence in the human ability to transform lives and achieve dreams reflects the inspiration behind “can do” as both, an organization, as well as a movement. National CanDo Day is celebrated to carry on this indomitable spirit. CanDo talks about how willpower and spirit can help us achieve our dreams. It encourages people to do things they are capable of, no matter how big or small the tasks seem. The spirit of National CanDo Day celebrates awareness of self-efficacy along with a belief that everyone is truly capable of attaining wonderful things!
