At TASC, we’re dedicated to improving the school experience and life prospects of the most disadvantaged students by giving them more time, ways and opportunities to learn and thrive. One of our essential efforts is to help schools use extra learning time to fight the scourge of childhood obesity by giving kids a daily hour of physical activity. For city kids who live in tight spaces, and whose neighborhoods can be unsafe for outdoor play, school is about the only place where they can get their hearts pumping. TASC is supporting some of the hardest-working kids we know who have taken up the challenge to walk, run, dribble, salsa dance, lunge or jump 9,100 steps a day. You can help public schools where budgets are tight, purchase the equipment they so desperately need.
$15 buys 6 speed jump ropes like boxers use to train (and kids love!)
$25 buys a pedometer to help a student count her daily steps
$50 buys steps and cones for a rainy-day indoor exercise circuit
$100 buys 5 yoga mats to help students practice their downward dogs
100% of your donations will support better health, nutrition and physical fitness efforts in TASC ExpandED Schools.
