PHIT going to The House!

Big announcement from our friends at PHITAmerica.org!

Great News! The PHIT ACT passed the House Ways and Means Committee by a vote of 28-7 with significant bi-partisan support.  It now goes to full House of Representatives for a vote during the week of July 23 as part of the Health Savings Act Reform Bill.

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 ‘Inactivty 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 visibilty 45 day fitness ‘ride’ across America.

Stay posted.
