JABS is teaming up with The Peconic Bay Medical Center, and The Mattituck Lions Club to bring Project Fit America into 2 of our local North Fork Schools: Greenport and Cutchogue East Elementary.
Project Fit America works with communities to bring in funding, equipment, teacher training, curriculum and the resources schools need to actually get kids fit and foster a love of movement.
Obesity rates in choldren have tripled since 1980, and continue to rise. Being proactive and making programs like PFA available will foster excitment in physical education and cultivate healthy children.
Join our fundraising efforts to raise the funds required to implement this program. Every dollar will be going to our children and our future.
