Our partners at PHIT America.org have important news we want to share with you. Below is from Jim Baugh, President of PHIT America:
In 2016, we got another 50,000 kids moving in school-based programs giving us over 100,000 in the past two years. Here are some of the highlights:
We doubled their activity levels adding an avg. of 85 minutes of physical activity per week per child
Many of these kids are being active and playing sports outside of school
In the past two years, almost 300 school programs have been supported
Cost per child for the two years is now at < $15 per child
We already have 3 new Major Sponsors committed to enlarge our impact in 2017; If you want to help us contact me at Jim@PHITAmerica.org
