Fit4Kids’ Partner Schools

Level of education attainment, poverty, and race are associated with higher levels of obesity and inactivity. For example, nearly 33 percent of adults who did not graduate from high school are obese, compared with 21.5 percent of those who graduated from college. Lower income levels translate into higher rates of obesity and related diseases. Also, African American children and adolescents have higher rates of obesity than other ethnic groups. Because of this higher need, the majority of Fit4Kids’ programs target diverse and low-income communities. Specifically, seven of our nine partner schools have a Title I designation, indicating a high percentage of students qualify for free / reduced lunch.
