Our team’s hearts are heavy due to the passing of our friend and colleague, Cynthia Piazza, on October 31st. Cynthia was a rockstar Wellness Integration Specialist and passionate about infusing movement and wellness into schools. Cynthia served as a Fit4Kids’ Integrator for three years in Hopewell at Patrick Copeland and DuPont Elementary Schools. She taught hundreds and hundreds of active lessons, led run clubs, helped start a school garden, and so much more. No matter what, Cynthia always put kids first. Prior to joining Fit4Kids, Cynthia was a Title I Math Specialist at Harrowgate Elementary in Chesterfield and was awarded Teacher of the Year for all of Chesterfield County!

Anyone who knew Cynthia, knows her passion for running. Having completed 29 marathons, she was an avid runner and always encouraged anyone and everyone to take up running.

Cynthia Moore Piazza was a wife and mother, teacher, friend, confidant, runner, and all-around amazing human. She was the definition of a role model, spending her time educating, coaching, and mentoring those around her with unparalleled energy and passion. We feel very lucky to have shared a season of life with her. As one of her friends put it, she never lost the fight, just crossed another finish line.
