Project Fit America
PFA is a national agency that works at the grassroots level with schools and front line educators to create new opportunities for kids to be active, fit and healthy. They believe in fit kids, one school at a time. They work with communities to bring in funding, equipment, teacher training, curriculum and the resources schools need to actually get kids fit and foster a love of movement. When Project Fit America comes to a school, kids never want to miss PE and teachers report they see fantastic changes not just in their students' health, but in their attitude toward fitness and healthy life styles.
PFA is an action based charity which means the funds they receive result in kids in motion. They have been doing this work for twenty years and have learned that it is true….if you build it, they will come!
