Fit4Kids is excited to announce that we’re turning 10 this spring! That’s a whole decade of active play, eating fresh, and healthy fun. We’re using this milestone to share why we believe focusing on children’s health and wellness is so critical, but also to expand our reach in the years to come.
Through the HERE WE GROW campaign, we’re aiming to raise an additional $100,000 by June 30th to support new initiatives below and expand the ones we currently offer to more than 10,000 kids each year.
Strengthened Focus on Advocacy and Policy – Our kids need and deserve healthy and flavorful school meals, daily recess, opportunities for active play, and learning promoting healthy habits that will strengthen their bodies and minds. Over 18 months, Fit4Kids will invest an additional $40,000 in amplifying community voices.
Expand Teacher Training Model to Enhance Wellness in Schools – After a successful pilot program in Petersburg, we’ll use the remaining $60,000 to create a formal teaching certification program to train dozens of teachers on kinesthetic strategies and how to best promote active classrooms to keep kids moving throughout the day.
