BENEFITING: Wellness In The Schools Inc
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2015
Make a difference in the lives of thousands of children by supporting the Wellness in the Schools' (WITS) New York City Marathon Team as they fundraise for healthier food and fitness programming in public schools.
One of the first organizations to truly address the childhood obesity epidemic in schools, Wellness in the Schools has grown from a single classroom in 2005 to over 75 schools across NYC, New Jersey, and Florida. Wellness in the Schools is a leader in the school food revolution, creating hands-on programs to address food and fitness in public schools as keys to lifelong health. We have been honored to be recognized by many other leaders in the field including: being held as a national model by First Lady Michelle Obama at her Inaugural Chef's Move to Schools Conference; named World Diabetes Day Champions by the International Diabetes Foundation; Food Revolution Heroes by Chef Jamie Oliver; and Lunchbox Heroes by Renegade Lunch Lady, Chef Ann Cooper.
By supporting the WITS marathon team you can become part of the school food revolution and help us provide much-needed food and fitness programming in high-poverty public schools.
