THE STORY:

THE STORY:

FAN4Kids mission is to fight childhood obesity by educating kids of all shapes and sizes about healthy eating and actie lifestyles to empower them to make healthy decisions about fitness and nutrition. We prevent the problems of poor eating and inactivity by instilling LESSONS THAT LAST A LIFETIME.

FAN4Kids instructors teach consecutive, full days of dynamic fitness and nutritional programming including a structured, active recess throughout the year. Since its inception, FAN4Kids has provided high quality education to over 17,000 children in some of the most challenging communities in New York City and New Jersey.
