More about this campaign
KidFit is a development firm that not only rebuilds and develops communities, but also rebuilds and develops people through a unique utilization of mentoring, academics, and athletics; inspiring all to pay it forward. KidFit has been designed to help prevent childhood obesity. The necessity of this program stems from the epidemic that is plaguing our children today. In order to have the greatest impact, KidFit is currently offered at our local elementary schools. Our schools are overflowing with children who need to have structured physical activities and an opportunity to increase their knowledge of healthy living. After school for four days a week, 1.5 hours each day, KidFit will be actively involved with students, providing them with various engaging activities that will raise their heart rate, boost their metabolism, increase their self awareness and confidence while regulating their BMI and weight. Along with athletics, we offer nutritional classes that vary from menu planning to understanding circulatory system. The mentoring is directly in conjunction with personal goal setting of each child, behavior monitoring, anti-bullying, team building and leadership opportunities. The goal is to create lifelong fitness advocates who can spread their knowledge to other peers as well as their families. KidFit participants will pay it forward by preventing obesity from spreading even further.
