Greater Richmond Fit4Kids is a non-profit organization created to improve the health and wellness of children by increasing physical activity and promoting healthy eating. The organization is focused on improving children’s health and reducing childhood obesity.
In order to increase the physical activity and wellness of school children in elementary schools, Fit4Kids launched three innovative programs in the 2012-2013 school year: Recess Coaching, Wellness Integration, and Learning Gardens. In the 2013-2014 school year, all of these programs will be continued and expanded to include a new school site.
Our Board of Directors is comprised of area business leaders and other professionals who are passionate about improving the health and nutrition of children.
We rely on volunteers, donations, and grants to make our programs available to Title I schools and those who need nutrition education and support the most. We also integrate physical activity into our programs and are appreciative of backing by Sports Backers for many of our services and events.
