Fit4Kids works to improve children's health through increased physical activity and health eating. We are committed to reducing the prevalence of childhood obesity in the greater Richmond region.
Donations received through the Corporate 4-miler will support Recess Coaching, an exciting new program we are launching at several schools this Fall. A teacher at one of our partner schools recently told us,
"I'm at the end of my rope. It doesn't seem to matter how many conversations we have with them about friendship and being a team player, all they want to do is fight. I've had to cut recess short every day this week to write office referrals. It's exhausting. I don't know what else to do."
Using energy and imagination, the Fit4Kids Recess Coaches cultivate an inclusive environment that encourages all children to be active regardless of athletic ability, weight, or disability. Using basic supplies such as balls, jump ropes, and cones, the Coaches will participate in recess every day by leading play activities that foster physical, social, and emotional development of the children.
