If you only choose to make one donation to an organization this year, please think of us next year, we’ll be here.
Our children. Children of all ages, races and socioeconomic backgrounds in HISD, KIPP, & Catholic Schools. Providing all of them – the opportunity to reach a fitness goal and participate in a one-of-a-kind health program and Houston’s only FREE kids fun run.
Why we do it. 92% of Texas Elementary schools lack a daily physical education program, more than 1 in 3 kids are overweight or obese, and 73% of school-aged children in Houston are considered economically disadvantaged. Healthy lifestyle habits start (and stick) early. That’s where we – and our amazing volunteers – come in.
How we do it. Across two semesters, students have an opportunity to reach a fitness goal through fun, rewarding team competition using fitness trackers, under desk bike pedals, and fun runs along with in class lesson and parent education material to get the whole family involved.
Our need. We are a non-profit organization. This means that your donation is absolutely critical to the existence of our program. We receive minimal grants and we are not a United Way agency.
