The Life Time Foundation is about inspiring healthy people and a healthy planet one mission at a time. Our current mission is improving children's nutrition - One School Lunch Program at a Time.We’re on a mission to ensure every child has a healthy start in life, beginning with proper nutrition and exercise.
Our objective is bold. Eliminate bleached flour, processed sugar, food coloring, high-fructose corn syrup, preservatives, trans fats and hormones from the lunch menu. While not an easy task, it's an essential one. In doing so, the Life Time Foundation will partner with Elementary schools to provide the necessary financial support to make this a reality, offsetting the gap between the existing school budget and the cost of the new healthy lunch menu. Additionally, in the spirit of supporting an overall healthy way of life, Life Time will also expand exercise programming, to complement existing the schools nutrition and exercise curricula.
Ultimately, by lending our exercise and nutrition expertise, and bringing the financial support necessary to launch this pilot program, we aim to develop a model that Life Time can bring to all of our markets. It is our goal to influence parents, schools, businesses, government and citizens to make dramatic improvements in the quality of nutrition we're providing our young people. Through a series of successful pilots, we intend to present a new model that can be copied and executed by others. We aim to be the agent of change, and know it will take support well above and beyond our direct efforts.
100% of every dollar donated to the Life Time Foundation supports our missions. That's because all administrative costs are contributed by Life Time Fitness, Inc., meaning the impact of your donation goes that much further.
