Get Moving In May...Get Kids Moving & Healthy For Life!

PA Month List 10 9PA MONTH HEADER 10 9PHIT America Month is a national campaign to Get America Moving.  The physical fitness of kids from the USA has fallen so far that American kids are now ranked 47th in global fitness out of 50 countries! You can learn about the 'Inactivity Pandemic' HERE.

PHIT America has worked with over 100 companies to have events all over the USA to get you moving in May. Look at all the events listed in the right column. Besides these activities, we have many other 'tools' to help you Get Moving!

- SPORT & FITNESS APPS - These apps help you get active & track your progress - The online 'yellow pages' of places to get moving!

- PHIT TIPS - We have a whole series of fitness tips for you

No matter what, Get Moving In May. We need to fight the 'Inactivity Pandemic' and there is no better time than now.


We are quick to put all the blame on influence of smart phones, electronics and social media. But there is another huge reason why Americans, especially kids, are inactive today - Physical Education has been taken out of


 our schools.  Over the last 20 years, educators have implemented a 'sit and learn' approach to education which has stripped physical education, recess, and even music and art out of our schools. Kids grow up with limited or no physical skills. They have minimal confidence or conditioning to be active or play a sport. What would you do if you were a kid with no physical activity skills? You would probably do something else like play video games or get addicted to your smart phone.

PHIT America has the solution in our GO! Grants program. We go 'where all the kids are' schools. We get kids physically moving with school-based physical activity or physical education programs. Our PHIT America GO! Grant are getting kids active for less than $20 per child. To date we have helped 300 schools and over 150,000 kids. But, we need your support to help more kids get active, fit and healthy.

This is entirely up to you. There is no obligation. You can donate any amount...or nothing. Getting you moving is our primary goal. But, we must help get sedentary (and unhealthy) kids moving and active.  When you give to PHIT America, we will make your donation work by investing in our PHIT America GO! Grant program.

  • A $10 donation will get a kid ‘off the couch’, active and moving through our PHIT America GO! Grant program. Learn about GO! Grants HERE..
  • Your donation enable us to support more GO! Grants to schools...leading children to a lifestyle of physical activity and fitness...for Life!
  • Schools which receive PHIT America GO! Grants will double a child's activity...adding 85 minutes of physical activity per week.
  • Independent research shows kids who have physical education are dramatically more active outside of school! 
  • How about adults? The results are similar. If adults did not have physical education when they were in school, they are TWICE as likely to be inactive or sedentary today.
  • Physical education is the 'grassroots program teaching physical activity skills in America'
