Sport is Life

Fit4Life aggressively stresses the importance of physical wellness, emotional well-being, character evolution and life skills development through sport, cultural and positive-life experiences.

Sport has been crucial to many generations in learning to live healthy and active lifestyles.  Sport teaches life skills and has the power to impart strong character, build leadership and develop specific core beliefs systems.  

Unfortunately, today’s youth (surnamed “millennials”) face many generational challenges and trends that we must work together to reverse.  The trends of inactivity and apathy in the physical, cognitive and social arenas of our children’s lives are a call to action. Specifically, many of these trends have lead to the rise of obesity, which leads to many other health concerns.

The statistics regarding childhood obesity are overwhelming:

Ø  One-third of children in the U.S. are overweight or obese

Ø  Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the last 30 years

Ø  Approximately 80% of overweight children aged 10 to 15 years are obese adults at age 25

Ø  Children are more likely to be obese if they live in disadvantaged neighborhoods

Ø  Overweight and obesity related medical expenses account for almost 10% of the total U.S. medical health care expenses – approximately $100 billion annually

We are asking for your help in working with us to further implement programs and sponsor events that will help us change these alarming statistics and trends.  At present, Fit4Life offers several programs which were created to combat childhood obesity, build character and teach life lessons through sport!

No donation is too small and all are tax-deductible. Thank you for helping us reach out to the youth of "The Next Generation!"
