Leadership

We started this nonprofit to create a kids health program we were proud of: a high-impact and thoughtfully designed kids fitness program. To build a program not targeting just athletes, a specific gender, or kids who can only participate after school, but rather a program accessible to all kids.

We began in 2014 from square one. Our goal was to give kids an opportunity to reach a fitness goal by using fitness trackers and friendly competition, a program we loved but didn’t exist. We had no funding, no certainty, no long-term plan. Without realizing it, we were beginning one of the greatest journeys of our lives.

This journey has been forged and enriched by the people who have joined us, encouraged us, and supported us along the way. Thank you for bringing us this far. We can’t wait to bring Fly Movement to more kids.

About The Founder

Why I created Fly Movement

Recently I saw how some of my younger relatives were eating high-calorie, low-nutrient foods and not getting enough physical activity. Climbing trees and playing outside has now been replaced with spending hours on iPads and video games. So, an idea occurred to me – if you give kids a fitness tracker and a challenge, maybe it will motivate them to move more. As a result, in addition to my full-time career, I launched Fly Movement – a nonprofit and the first kids’ health program that provides children an opportunity to reach a fitness goal through fun, rewarding team competition using fitness trackers.

I’m on a mission to inspire thousands of kids and families to live an active and healthier lifestyle. I don’t think I’ve come close to achieving my goal for Fly Movement, but I believe our program is improving as we keep working on it.
