EVENT: 2016 TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON

EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016

THE STORY:

Make a difference in the lives of thousands of children by supporting the Wellness in the Schools (WITS) ING New York City Marathon Team as they fundraise for healthier food, nutrition education, and fitness programming in public schools.

More than one in three children under 18 are overweight or obese in the United States. Children spend about 12,000 hours in school between kindergarten and high school graduation, providing the ideal environment to shape their wellness behavior. Yet, many schools lack the necessary resources for students to achieve the proper nutrition and physical activity that are prerequisites to optimal learning.

Wellness in the Schools (WITS) is a national non-profit that inspires healthy eating and fitness for kids in public schools. Through public-private partnerships, we work with schools to provide healthy, scratch-cooked meals, active recess periods, and fitness and nutrition education. Trained culinary graduates partner with cafeteria staff to feed kids real food, and fitness coaches encourage schools to let kids play. Our partnership approach drives systemic, long-term change, shifting the entire culture of schools and ultimately fighting the childhood obesity epidemic.

In partnership with local departments of education, our programs serve more than 50,000 children in 100 schools nationwide. In the past 11 years, we have cooked more than 11 million school meals and led more than 54,000 hours of play. We are continuing to expand our national footprint, helping schools across the country become healthier places for students to learn and grow

By supporting the WITS marathon team you can become part of the school food revolution and support much-needed food and fitness programming in high-poverty public schools.
