BENEFITING: DIG FOR KIDS
Dig 4 Kids was founded in the spring of 2000 by Professional Beach Volleyball Player and Olympic Gold Medalist, Eric Fonoimoana. The foundation is a 501 C 3 non-profit for public benefit corporation and has a federal charitable tax-exempt status. It was established after Eric noticed the lack of youth education and exercise programs in underserved communities. He felt a strong desire to "equalize" these circumstances in these areas. With the success of the foundations first pilot program conducted in Carson, California and Eric's success in winning THE GOLD, the dream of Dig 4 Kids has become a reality and the organization has gained both national and international sponsorship and recognition for its efforts. Dig 4 Kids has helped over 2,810 children learn the importance of education and physical fitness.
