The just keep livin Foundation was started by Matthew and Camila McConaughey and is dedicated to empowering high school students by providing them with the tools to lead active lives and make healthy choices for a better future. The foundation implements after-school fitness and wellness programs in 19 inner city high schools/sites and is designed to work with schools and non-profit organizations in each local community to reach the maximum number of teenagers with the greatest needs. In our programs, we encourage students to make positive life choices that improve their physical and mental health through exercise, teamwork, gratitude, nutrition and community service. Participating students have a safe place to enhance their lives with fitness coaches and health experts. The results have been incredible. Participants get in shape and gain confidence while also improving their grades, attendance and behavior. Friendships are built and fears are overcome. At our j.k. livin after school programs, kids learn self-reliance and get a healthy start today, so they can make a better tomorrow.
We are asking each j.k. livin team member to raise a minimum of $500. This will sponsor a child for one year in our program. You will also be helping us reach our goal of $30,000 to sponsor our program at an inner-city high school for an entire year! Students from our Los Angeles programs will be running with our team.
Each team member will receive:
• Weekly training schedules, training tips, and nutrition tips
• just keep livin foundation T-shirt
• just keep livin foundation wristband
