A Movement for a FIT and Healthy America
The Cost of Obesity in the USA in 2013 Keeps Rising

Our #1 Program - 400,000+ Kids Active In The Past 3 Years! 

GO Grants LogoPHIT America GO! Grants have been awarded to over 700 schools getting children 5-12 years old physically active and healthier. GO! Grants help get children active for the first time or increase their physical activity & fitness level. Leading brands like ASICS, Saucony, New Balance, Life Fitness, Wilson, the USTA and many more are investing in the GO! Grants programs. Donations from individuals & companies allow us to expand our reach to more children in more schools the USA.

Our GO! Grant programs are implemented either before the school day, during or after school. We help schools because we can help all kids become more healthy through increased physical activity. This program is the ideal way to fight the 'Inactivity Pandemic' which is creating health & education issues for our children.


GO! Grants Get Kids Healthier Through Physical Activity

The Average Kid In Our GO! Grant Programs Doubles Their Physical Activity Level!

PHIT America Goes Where The Kids Are, in schools.  We get to all children to introduce them to a life of physical activity and fitness for better health.  This is why we go to schools where we capture all children...not just the ones who want to be active. 

In the past two years, PHIT America GO! Grants were awarded to over 700 schools in 48 states which jump-starts more physical activity and fitness for more than 400,000 children. Most importantly, children in GO! Grant programs are doubling their activity levels.  2017 research shows the average kid added over 85 minutes of physical activity per week. The school environments are also energized by the grants.

School 'Champions,' those who are managing our grants at the local schools, are leveraging our grant with other resources and donations from other community groups.  They are also insuring that the new physical activity programs are sustainable year after year.  Check out some of the quotes from our local school 'Champions' HERE.

Schools in America Have No $'s For Physical Education - Our Kids Are Being Hurt

At the moment, 80% of all elementary schools have an annual budget for P.E. of less than $1,000. Right now, 10 million children in the USA are totally inactive or 'couch potatoes.'  And 80% of children are at high risk of disease because they aren't physically active. Children need your help. Schools need more financial support to get their students physically active. PHIT America GO! Grants help children become more active, fit and healthy.
