Timmy Global Health was founded in 1997 by Dr. Charles (Chuck) Dietzen, a pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist. After working in a number of international settings, including with Mother Teresa, Dr. Chuck was inspired to serve more communities by engaging the next generation of healthcare leaders. The organization was named after Dr. Chuck’s brother Timmy, who passed away in his infancy. The organization is a legacy to both Dr. Chuck’s brother and family, as well as a tribute to all the patients around the world that deserve quality healthcare.

“The Timmy Takedown is one of my favorite events. Children have been entering the ring to win their title match over Dr. Doom and Cargo for 20 years.
The Timmy Takedown has always been a great event, I might even enjoy it more than the kids who are always the winners. Taking the event international has always been on my bucket list. A little good can go a long way for the people of Queretaro, Mexico and it was a blast helping them host this event and our first International Timmy Takedown.” Dr. Chuck
