PHIT Act passes the House!

Great news from our friends at PHIT America.org:

Historic Positive Vote!

In a major step to help overcome the ‘Inactivity Pandemic’ and improve the health of Americans, The US House of Representatives late this afternoon passed the PHIT Act by a bipartisan measure of 277-142. This comes less than two weeks after being passed by the House Ways and Means Committee.

Now the PHIT Act moves to the Senate. We still have a lot of work to do on many fronts. We will keep you posted but your support has helped. Lets keep the pressure on. We are ‘moving it down the field’.

PHIT America thanks you for your support. The ‘Inactivity Pandemic’ continues to get worse but passing the PHIT Act is a great step to create an active, fit and healthy America.

Soon we will be announcing great results for our PHIT America GO! Grants for 2018. We will also start to educate Americans on the ‘Inactivity Pandemic’ and our solutions. You will be seeing the release of our 30-minute PHIT America Documercial and video. And, this fall, look out for a high visibility 45 day fitness ‘ride’ across America.

Stay posted.

News from American Baseball Foundation

From our partners at ABF:

Dear BASIC Supporters & Donors,
Thanks to you, this summer has already been a home run.
Our Birmingham BASIC East and South programs teed off this summer divided among the following three gracious host sites: John Carroll Catholic High School, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, and the Hoover Metropolitan Stadium. These sites have served as a stadium, a classroom, and a home to 140 children eager to learn, play, and connect with one another.
We also kicked off our Inaugural Huntsville Summer BASIC program, where under the umbrella of Summer Adventures in Learning (SAIL) North, the Huntsville School System has embarked on the BASIC adventure with forty-eight new students.
Your support has given these children access to over 300 sports-related math and reading lessons and 160 hours of access to qualified coaches and educators. Over the next few weeks, we will spend time actively and collaboratively learning meaningful content that will provide opportunities for choice and autonomy, a sense of belonging, supportive relationships, and a brighter future for those whose circumstances make it look bleak.
BASIC curriculum was written by the Learning Department at UAB and designed to redress summer learning loss in students grades 1st-8th. Over the last 20 years, our program has strived to relieve the stress and disadvantages had by under served children later in life by closing the learning gap between middle and low-income students at an early age. With tremendous success, the BASIC curriculum, our staff, and your support have averaged up to a six month gain each year in crucial subjects such as reading and math.
Here are a few examples of all the fun we’ve been having this summer!
