ABOUT US

Mission Statement:

To inspire positive change in children, while building self-esteem through physical activity and smart nutrition
to enhance their quality of life. 


Vision:

To eradicate childhood obesity and live in a healthy community.


Here are 5 ways YOU can get involved...

Be a part of the solution to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic.
 

1) Commit to a healthy & active lifestyle for your family! 
       - Take the first step by getting active (at least 60 minutes daily) and learn about smart nutrition choices.
         The GO, SLOW and WHOA Food Widget above is a great resource to help make good nutrition choices.

2) Sponsorships and In-Kind
         - Kicks R Us hosts an annual event At Bat for Kids TM (a HealthFest, Celebrity Softball Game and Concert) a community-wide celebratory day of health,  
         fitness and nutrition. Both types of sponsorships provide a variety of marketing opportunities for your business or foundation.
                                 To receive your 2011 At Bat for Kids sponsorship proposal email: sponsorships@atbatforkids.com

3) Volunteer
         - We are always delighted to speak with chefs, doctors, educators, licensed social workers, personal trainers, registered dietitians, motivational speakers, 
           champions of weight loss, and peopole in the community passionate about health, fitness and nutrition to discover opportunities for collaboration.
                                                                                      For more information on volunteering email:

4) Advocate
      - Are you concerned about the current childhood obesity epidemic?  Let your voice be heard to the White House, Congress, local decision-makers         
        and media about the importance of supporting grassroot initiatives at the community level to help combat this pandemic.

5) Donate
        - We have ambitious plans in 2011 to launch a free community program to clinically diagnosed obese children and to host two new community events. 
          Your donation will help defray costs associated with these new events and programs.

Thank you for supporting a healthy & active community!
