Organize An Event Similar To RideDougRide.org - Did you hear about Doug Gordon? This ‘young’ 61 year old from the sports & fitness industry is riding his bike across America to support PHIT America. Doug is now riding into California after starting in Charleston, SC on February 15. With the money he is raising, it will help support physical education programs throughout the USA by expanding the PHIT America GO! Grants programs. Go to RideDougRide.org to learn more.
As PHIT America continues to lead the battle to reverse America’s ‘Inactivity Pandemic,’ you might ask, ‘How will our 501(c)(3) non-profit organization use the funds which are donated?’
PHIT America will be distributing most of the funds for GO! Grants to elementary schools across the U.S. to help rekindle P.E. programs for young students. Forty-eight percent of all schools have no physical education and many have no recess. Children who have physical education are 2-3 times more likely to be physically active outside of school. Research shows children who have physical education also do better academically in school. PHIT America will be using some of the donation support (20% or less) to expand its education messaging and tools as well as its administrative costs.
PHIT America will use your donation and all our resources to fulfill our mission to get America more active, fit & healthy!
