ORGANIZER: Greater Richmond Fit4Kids Inc
Thanks for your support!
Among other areas, Fit4Kids works with local schools to address opportunities for change in physical education curriculum, better food options in school cafeterias, nutrition programs for children and their parents with local community partners that have developed programs to encourage physical activity outside of school. Fit4Kids will focus its initial efforts on impacting children from kindergarten through the twelfth grade. By establishing a coordinated front to promote physical activity and healthy eating habits and developing sustainable programs, a true change in lifestyle and improved wellness all become more attainable goals.
Development and enhancement of programs will lead to a larger effort by Fit4Kids in the future to provide leadership to advocate for change in the fields of health, nutrition and physical activity. To promote more change across Virginia in the long term, Fit4Kids may ultimately lead an effort to lobby government officials. The organization will also recognize teachers and members of the community who are doing things right in their little corner of the world to improve the health and wellness of the children in their lives.
Again, thank you for all of your support!
